Re: Canadian prairie and northern US honey crop outlook
I have made a pretty good contact with a local guy that has 2600 hives. I asked how his year was. He's said when the flow hit it was lots and short. I think he had a few too many swarms because of hives full of honey no time to super.
Good for beginners like me free bees are always good. He calls me when he gets a swarm call. I think I missed 3 cuz I don't always carry my cell.
We had a cool wet spring that went a little long summer was hot but short. Weather man is talking 21 tomorrow followed by 7 and 4 for mon and tuesday.
I have a feeling winter is going to be early and lots of snow.
Started with 2nucs then 3 swarms 2 cut outs it's been a busy first year I'm near Red Deer.
