Frost May Cause Starvation

This frost is frequently the cause of medium or small families starving

in cold weather, even when there is plenty of honey in the hive.

Suppose all the honey in the immediate vicinity of the cluster of bees

is exhausted, and, the combs in every direction from them are covered

with frost; if a bee should leave the mass and venture among them for a

supply, its fate would be as certain as starvation. And without timely

intervention of warmer weather, they _must_ perish!
