Last year was my first "real" year in beekeeping. In July I noticed a few cells of a honey that were a very light clear green. The cells were probably three or four in number, and all touching. What does it come from?
I extracted 30 lbs of green colored honey last year . looked yellow , until you held it up to the light then it was the prettist color of lime green you ever saw. I dont know where it came from but I do have smooth sumac here and the bees do work it . has any one else extracted green honey?
This green honet you are talking about sounds like it may be honey-dew from aphids. Ants farm aphids for the sweet dew but sometimes when there is a darth of nector the bees will colect it because it is sweet like nector.
