    I work in South Forth Worth and the Brandford Pears just busted wide open today. Now that the trees are starting to bloom do we keep the pollen substitute on?

    The ornamental pears are busted wide open here. Also wild plums.

    I would. Not enough early pollen. Let then catch up a little and they will probably stop taking the sub.

    Kingfisher, where is Gilmer, TX? I just moved some of my hives to the country and was told that there were wild plums along the creek so I may need to go out and look around to see what is blooming. However, the Bradford Pears haven't bloomed here in Amarillo yet, but the buds are swelling up with the warmer weather. Hopefully they'll pop in a week or so.

    My peach trees are about to bloom! Does anyone know when the pecan trees bloom and are they good for the bees in terms of nectar?

    Lupester....Pecans are wind pollinated and do not require bees. They may gather a little pollen from them, but I have never seen them. Also, they don't produce nectar, at least for bees. Total bust for a bee crop.

    Bummer, this snow is not good for my honey crop either. I think this is 4 snows so far this winter.

    As of yesterday my girls are now flying with a mission. Plenty of pollen coming in now, must be a flow on something cause they ain't slowing down not even to mess with me.
