    If the weather would just get over this high humidity thing called RAIN, we could battle the mites, the lack of room in the hive and swams.

    No, really it's great to have the rain, I just got used to not having it so often.

    You are lucky to be getting rain, its snowing here right now. We got about an inch on the ground and its still coming down hard. My bees worked so hard to pollinate my apple trees now the little apples are going to be dead.

    It stayed above freezing last night so I think most of the apples will be fine. The bees are doing good, But this is my first hive so i don't really know what good looks live. When its warm and sunny they are flying in and out so i guess thats good. After 1 week I pulled the queen cage out and the bees were working on 3 frames. The next warm day I will be looking to see if the queen is laying. Hope I know what I'm looking at.

    I don't spray my trees, I only have five trees and the apples are for family use not for sale.
