I'm wondering if it's OK to give my bees the core of watermelons ?

I do. Never saw a problem with it.

i have done it.  gave them a 1/2 not long ago and it was starting to go over.  wondered if they'd get drunk...and what do drunk bees look like anyway??   :-P
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
