Re: SC Beekeeping Blues
Well folks, it is cold up here in the NW part of SC too. Got off to a good start with dandelion, henbit, red maple. Now the maple is all bloomed out and it is too cold to fly. I have a few new packages on drawn comb that I am feeding internal.
For those of you who have a lot of years of experience, what is your opinion on the effect of several days of freezing weather on the red maple? Assuming the blooms are not killed, once it warms up how many days do you think it is before their is good nectar to collect.
