Maine's honey harvest could be the worst in years.
The heavy rain we had earlier this summer kept bees dormant in their hives.
That was followed by hot weather, which kept the flowers closed to conserve water.
According to the states bee inspector, the honey season is shaping up to be one of the ten worst in Maine history.
The hope is that the improved weather this month will improve the harvest in the fall.
Maine produced 91 million pounds of honey last year--worth about 70 million dollars.
