  1. Re: Any interest in this - App for Tracking Bloom or Honey Flow?

    That's my biggest concern - getting enough participation. For this to work I'd need to have at least one person per county per state. That's a lot of people. Of course, more people in a given area...

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if there would be any interest in an app to track bloom dates? I see the activity in the "Post your bloom dates 2013!" thread and am curious if any of you would be interested...

    Re: 1st Winter Question

    About a month ago we had a few 40s-50s days where there were plenty flying around both hives doing cleansing flights I assume. The past month though it has been cold - as low as 4 degrees at night...

    Hello,

    After weeks of winter-like temps it is about 60 degrees here in Vermont and my bees are flying - thousands of them by the looks of it.

    Re: To Restrict or not?

    Already did that a few weeks ago when I started feeding 2-1 and attracted a ton of yellow jackets in the area.

    I've got traps filled with yj but am still getting a few in the hives.

    To Restrict or not?

    It is regularly down in the 40s here and it is raining today.

    I've got my two hives ready for the winter with mouse guards ond a notch on the front of each inner cover to help with ventilation.

    Re: Attack by Yellow Jackets

    Well we had a torrential downpour last night just after I put the soda-bottle traps out. I'm sure it washed away any traces of the syrup I spilled.

    This morning I found several dozen yj in the two...

    Well I've put a few soda bottle yj traps out and will see how many I catch. When I got home it just started storming so I'm sure that will help wash away the rest of the spilled syrup. It looks like...

    I saw those but don't have time for a few days to put something like that together.

    Aargh. In removing a top feeder the other day I spilled some syrup about 15 ft from a hive.
