    Re: New to Forum

    Good build, but bad place for the side entrance, you'll split the hive that way, if the queen is to one side and then gets honey bound she won't get to other side. If the people you built for use...

    There are about 10 evergreen junipers around this area, very likely the ground creeping juniper. Cedars would be included.

    Re: Bees bringing in polen in MD

    In this area of Southern and Mid Maryland you got Maple, Ash, and Juniper pollen now. The paler yellow is Maple and Ash; the darker will come from some type of Juniper in your area.
  10. Re: confused, like normal, seeing nectar in the comb

    I would agree with Mike if it's a band as he describes; but also lots of hives in Frederick area, could be your seeing some coming in from open feeding in the area.
