To survive in the temperate zone, how did the species Apis mellifera adapt (change its behavior)?

It changed its behavior in two major ways from the other Apis species that never moved out of the tropics. (1) it stored enough surplus honey to survive the winter dearth and (2) it developed an advanced clustering behavior to keep the queen alive through cold winters.
