Our bees are getting there. The late splits we made in early sept are for the most part looking good. Temperatures have been good. Bees are still broody. Some pollen coming in and we are still feeding patties. We've had mite treastments on them getting close to a month now, so overall I'd say we are looking pretty good. Last load of bees coming back from ther north monday morning. The other load early this week looked pretty good. Only had to replace 6 queens out of 152. Another good thing is that more thn 85% of the queens are from this year and of those I'd say about 80% we raised. I think they'll be just fine.
