On the inter-net boards you hear a lot of "talk" about bees storing
sugar water in the cells, and they have frames of sugar water honey.
I question this, I often say get a book look it up, but so far I haven't found any research.
The way I see it the bees use the sugar water for their own nutretion they do not transport it back to a cell for storage.
Now if they did take it for storage, wouldn't it have to go thru the bees honey making process before going into the cell then the moisture reduced to honey/water percent before capped ? Thus making it into honey !
I've talked to two small commercial beekeepers and they both said if it's in a capped cell it's honey.
I've been wrong a FEW times before so just wondering if any one knows about any research on this.
You can tell I'm bored, just another 3/4 in of rain today, about 10 in. this past week, AND, another week of rain predicted.
