I've been down here in SC working bees these past three weeks and we haven't had very good weather for foraging or mating. Next week doesn't look any better. Will hardly break 60 degrees all week according to The Weather Channel.
I spent the last two days feeding hives w/ HFCS 55, some twice in less than 24 hours. Yellow jasmine is in bloom and causing problems in those hives foraging on it.
