Beekeeping Adventures: All New Bees
A bees life lasts about six to eight weeks. All the honeybees from the Memorial Day weekend install, with the exception of the queen, are gone. The last set of bees born for the season will overwinter. They will not leave the hive and only serve to keep the queen warm and feed her. They will die soon after the winter is over. A queen's life is roughly three to five years in length.
