    Thumbs Up Nectar in hives

    Got a chance to go into some hives yesterday! To my suprise, there was nectar in several of them. At one yard I've got 4 hives set up for pollination of strawberrys. All four are very strong and three of the four have some freshly capped honey(pure white caps) and loads of nectar. I checked the little strawberry plants to find them full of white blooms. Thank god spring is almost here in Easern North Carolina!

    It's a great feeling eh?

    Checked mine a couple weeks ago and found nectar also to my great surprise. And they are bringing in truckloads of pollen.
