Honey bees produce honey which they make from nectar, a sugary solution they collect from flowering plants. This honey is the food store that bees feed on over the winter. In Maine a honey bee colony requires about 100lbs of honey to survive the cold winters. A strong hive however, can produce a large surplus of honey over and above that required to survive the winter.
