    Default U.S. Pollen Maps

    I visited pollen.com the other day and saved the map image from Feb 2nd:





    Below is the Feb 6th pollen map.



    It's encouraging to see difference...

    Heavy pollen coming into the hives today. Mostly tan, and some yellow. I'm not sure from where,but the neighbors willow is suspect. They ripped through some soy flower a couple of weeks ago,but wouldn't touch it today.. encouraging to say the least!

    That's good to hear. Pollen reports in GA and maple in bloom in NC, so, maybe my bees in SC are having access to some pollen too.

    Maple's have started in NC? News to me. They start on average the 1st of February, but I havn't seen any yet. Maybe it's just my location that hasn't gotten it yet.

    I have some red maple buds that are swelling, but none are open yet. I suspect some would be in flower east of I-95 over to the coast.

    I have a couple ornamental shrubs that have opened over the last week that the girls were really working.

    Here.. east of 95... close to the SC border and the Atlantic.. the Red Maple is definitely on the move... I would think the henbit can not be far behind. So I am pretty sure Mark's bees are getting some feed today... at least if the sun will come out.

    I saw bees on both of these today in Hillsborough. I did see the distinct red pollen from henbit coming into the hives last week, but not very much of it. My maples certainly have not hit yet but they are not far off, although the weather is not looking too good for them this week.

    Is there some way to put that to loop, so as to see the progress?

    When I have time I'll look for a .gif animator program... that will loop.

    If people find this interesting I'll continue to save the daily maps and work on looping them together.

    Oops, I meant wind borne. You know, travels on the wind?

    So what kind of pollen does this map show? The kind bees benefit from or not? Or does it matter, because if Human Allergy Causing Pollen is being produced, so aree other kinds?

    Yea, that looping thing is it. Nice job, thank you. I think it's a great tool. Thanks again.
