Just returned form doing a cut out... I am dead tired and hoping I can clean the honey in the morning...

I know there are dead bees in the bucket....Will it affect the honey if the bees are left in overnight?

They will strain out just fine.

I figured that I could strain them out pretty easy.... I was just worrying about the bee body's releasing toxins into the honey...
