Is anyone else in South Eastern PA noticing the dearth? I don't think the golden rod or aster will be in bloom for a couple more weeks. My bees are hitting up the purple coneflower hard! They are also all over the garbage can. I started feeding sugar syrup to the nucs I started in early June, most of them were completely out of honey stores.
Is it death or is it a strike? ;)
My girls have been hanging out during middle part of the days and working in the evenings. We have had heat index at or near 110 for the past two weeks - thats too hot for man or Bees(t)
