    well , finally the bees wintered well, 10% loss, due to extreme warm weather I have started to feed the bees and have given them pollen patties. Hope to make splits to get the numbers up. Got to look for queens now, there is no problem to sell honey, just got to find a way to produce enough...lol temperature this week in the 20 degree celsius or lower 70s for my southern friends. cheers for now Stephen

    ya, I had a good winter also, running a 7% loss, but I figure by the time I have gone through them and cull all the queen problems Ill see 10%. The bees look fantastic! Its been a while since I have last had a winter this successful. Great fall last year for them and this spring started 3 weeks earlier. No doubt the weather helped them along this year. It was a bit of a panic to get them out of the shed in time when the weather shifted to 25 degree days this spring!!!!

    Its all good. Got my queen orders in line and I am hoping this year to be a predictable one! LOL

    I am hearing much the same around here
