    Just moved down to the Texas gulf coast and my bees have been bringing in pollen for at least the last two weeks. Spent my lunch break out there a few times and saw many bees coming in with pollen baskets on their hind legs. Color was golden. Have no idea where there were getting it from.

    Cold weather snaps in the last two weeks has all the girls inside buddled up tight but the pollen counts are medium to medium high according to the charts.

    Thanks for the charts.

    Pollen.com is saying that the predominate pollen (in the air) in Tampa FL is: Juniper, Maple, and Oak.

    Some of my bees got out today, and it looks like there will be a couple more good flying days later in the week.

    Thanks B.C., great job! You know anything that encouraging is of interest to beekeepers. All hives today bringing in pollen; dandelion I imagine. Low to mid 60's all this week!

    I'm in the mountains of N.C. and we are having highs in 50's to almost 70 this Friday, and temps staying up according to the 10 day forecast. Was out by my hives yesterday and saw them bringing in a pale yellowish pollen which surprised me, cause to my eyes nothing is blooming yet, but If there's any out there guess they will find it!

    Same here in northern Alabama! They're packing in pale yellowish pollen like crazy today. My neighbor thinks it may be from our southern red cedars. Makes me wonder if I should go ahead with the pollen patties?

    Yep! pollen.com says the predominant pollens at my zip code are juniper (cedar), and ash. I've got lots of cedars around, I'll have to learn to identify ash. Next question - how do you find out how useful or not these pollens are to bees?

    Well I'm thinkin along the lines of if theyr'e bringing it in, it's good for them. I won't be messing with pollen patties myself, as my hives went into winter with plenty of pollen and already bringing some in. More pollen on the way, this is only the beginning!
