Re: New Colonies, Exceptional Drought, and Feeding
You picked one of the worst years in our history to start but made the right call to keep feeding. Just make sure you protect them against fire ants and robbing. La Nina is apparently on the way back, and with over 80 days and counting of 100+ degree weather and zero rain this summer, there will be precious little forage for our bees for many months to come.
Hope you and your family did not suffer loss in the wildfire in Spicewood. I am afraid of what may still be to come from more wildfires.
