Is there any point or benefit that could come from dehydrating honey?

I've done a little research and saw one company selling cough drops and little packets of dehydrated honey to put in tea or coffee, which seems like it could be a neat little farmers market product or gift giving idea.

It doesn't seem to effect storage life, so no benefit there. It also readily absorbs moisture, so it could quickly turn into a mess.

Have any of you tried this? Please share your experiences, tips, thoughts, etc.

I know some conventional beeks, use a dehumidifier to dehydrate their honey if they have taken it off too soon e.g. OSR to make sure it doesn't granulate before extraction.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
