Locust trees and honey
Hi all, I live in southwest MO and have a lot of locust trees in the neighborhood. Does anyone know what type of locust ( black, honey, etc ) that we have here and is it something the bees will work.
The honey my bees put up early was very light with a smooth taste ( for lack of a better way to describe it ) and I never could find what they were working. My early/ midsummer honey is typical wildflower. It has a taste that I sometimes smell when I'm outside but it's not a plant I recognize. Right now the only thing I see them working is chicory in the mornings.
Just curious about the locust, I try to kill as many as I can but if my bees could work it I might give em a break.
Thanks for any replies, Woody
