Do Bees Hibernate During Winter?
No, bees over winter as a strong colony clustered together and using their bodies to generate heat. This cluster is about the size of football, with bees taking turns to be on the cold outside.
White-nose syndrome, described only in the last two years, strikes its victims during their winter hibernation. Bats cuddled along the walls of caves or mines develop a white fuzz on their noses and wings, grow gaunt and then die.
Famerman, I know bats consume huge amounts of mosquitoes and black flies, but they don't do much in the way of eating bees or wasps - the big pollinators of tomatoes. At least not that I ever heard. What's the connection between bats and tomatoes?
