This year I had four hives that were big enough to make a spring honey crop it starts last week of April and is usually done first week of June.Only one made a decent honey crop none of these hives swarmed but the amount of bees that were present at the flow stunk.My question to the experenced beekeepers is what can I do to maxamize my bees so that they'll make a decent spring crop next spring.And can you name a good pollen substute that will be good dry fed.SHB is making me swear off of pattys.
