Usually bees feed on the honey during the winter period.
Here is a comparison between the nutritional values of
honey and granulated sugar. Compared to honey,
granulated sugar contains no dietary viber, no protein,
no aminoacids, and almost no minerals.
Gee, I wonder what could go wrong when bees live
on that for an entire winter. :)
The answer to this problem would be to harvest
less honey and let the bees keep 10% to survive on.
I guess living off the fat of the land (and returning everything
else, like in Fukuoka farming) is a good principle to go by.
