Cool mornings, warm afternoons

posted in Our Hives |

The temperature is dipping into the low 40’s overnight, then rising to the 70’s in mid-afternoon. The girls show no sign of activity until the sun starts to warm the hives, but then quickly turn to work collecting pollen and visiting the pond. They are taking up the syrup rather slowly, which I hope means they have adequate supplies (we are past due for a proper inspection of the hives). Judging from the number of bees flying to and from the hives, I’d say the hives are all healthy and have a good number of bees. This week we will take a look in the hives and check.


Stumble it!
