Today I put pollen patties on each of our 3 hives. Â 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. Â 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. Â That way the girls can clean house. Â The interiors can get cluttered over the winter!Stumble it!
