I wonder how many of us have honeydew mixed in with our honey?

The reason I have mentioned this is because I hae been doing some pollen ID for othe beekeepers and came across this fungus (see photo).

When you think of where the Honeydew is dispatched from no wonder its has spores in it.
This one is named Alternaria brassicae.

Oh my! Mostly it is woods and gardens around mine... quite a lot of trees.

Yes they probabaly go for honey dew I expect. There is sometimes a lot of it dripping off the sycamores. Who wants fungus in their honey. What does it mean?
