If you see white honeybees flying into your hives, don’t worry. They will have been working the Himalayan balsam, which flowers from early July until the first frosts. They come home covered in white pollen. Balsam is now the main late source of pollen and nectar in low-lying areas near streams and rivers, and a good honey producer.
