First post for the 2012 season

posted in Our Hives |

Today I put pollen patties on each of our 3 hives.  The hives have all survived the mild winter with strong colonies: the two strongest are at reasonable numbers of bees, we are going to have to put supers on those hives early.  The weakest hive, which I had left a super of honey on for food over the winter, has survived and was successful in using the extra honey.

Since the hives are doing well, I took off the mouse guards.  That way the girls can clean house.  The interiors can get cluttered over the winter!

Stumble it!
