  • No, bees do not get drunk on honey (unless, of course it has fermented). However they can get a tad sluggish from a lot of it (just think how you'd feel after eating half your weight in food). this is actually a safeguard against fire. if the bees smell smoke they will proceed to gorge themselves is case the colony must flee. we beekeepers use this to calm the insects down; we blow smoke into the hive which causes them to, through the aforementioned process, become somewhat sluggish.
