Re: Crystallized honey good or bad for bees?
Most of the buckwheat planted in NY produces no nectar, that's why bees fly over it to work clover. Buckwheat that does produce nectar does so during certain hours of the day, shutting off nectar production quickly which may be why colonies are so cranky when working buckwheat.
