    Re: My Bees Today

    Always get a thrill out of seeing pollen collectors return to the hive. Thanks for the photo.

    Either way, if they are at all slow to start working in the deep, watch for swarming. Especially with a heavy early flow.

  12. Re: Help! hundreds dead bees after flurry of activity Jan 31 2016 Long Island NY

    I think it was just a good flying day. Most of the dead bees are probably those that were hauled out of the hive by those that are
    cleaning things up a bit.
    FWIW all of my hives were flying hard...
