Springtime is in the air and overwintered hives are exploding with new bees. The natural tendency is for the hive to split and swarm. If you see a grouping of bees like the picture below, give us a call at 763-202-7235 and we can help you determine if it is a swarm. See the “Swarm Removal & Extraction” tab for more information.
Not to worry! Most raw or unheated honey will at some point turn to sugar crystals. It is not an indicator of spoilage, impurity, age or quality. What makes honey crystallize is due to the type of flower the honey bee visited when she gathered the blossom’s nectar. The floral source determines whether the honey will turn into a solid form more quickly or not. Some honeys while raw will stay in a liquid form for quite a while. Other honeys will turn to a solid form with in a few weeks. This is due to how stable the sugar crystal is in the nectar.
If your honey crystallizes, simply place the honey jar in warm water and stir until the crystals dissolve, or place the honey container into near boiling water that has been removed from the heat.
