    Default Feeding Frenzy

    About 2 weeks ago I left my feed bucket outside. And 3-8 bees at a time were getting the tiny bit that was left over. So when I made more feed, I placed some of my feed with essential oil mix in it out there for them. This is what happened. These are not my bees. Since mine are 10 miles away. I think these are from a feral hive around here. I don't know anyone around here that keeps.

    About an hour after I put it out.



    About 3 hours later:

    lol.

    That is a frenzy. Many more and they could have carried the whole drum.

    Thanks for posting that picture. It looks so nice and warm. I'm sitting here with a sweater on. Worked outside all day and it got up to about 32 degrees

    Lightbulb free bees

    Put out more feed and watch carefully which way they fly. You can follow them back to their tree and next spring you have a new hive.

    About 80 deg when I took my pics 2 weeks ago. 80 deg again today. Cold is moving in. High on Saturday is gonna be upper 50's. That's getting cold for us.

    My thought's exactly. I have them narrowed down to about a 20 acre patch they could be in. I was gonna put out more feed. And talk a walk.
