Too hot to forage soybeans?
We've had a few days where it been in the upper 90's with what felt like 90% humidy. It kinda felt like trying to breathe yogurt. Nonetheless, I've got soybean fields right next to me but the bee's are simply sitting on the porch. The soybeans appear to be the same type that were also planted around July 1st. The soybeans are now blooming (small white flowers) but the bee's don't seem to care. Last year they refilled their supers within a month.
I examined my 6 hives (5 produce, 1 is growing for next year) last weekend when I pulled the drone frames and sugar dusted them. They're full of bees with nice laying patterns and fresh eggs so they appear to be healthy. I did find some fresh nectar in some of the cells but not much. All I can figure is it's too hot or the soybeans planted are a different variety.
Any feedback is always appreciated.
