I live in the Piedmont of NC and am curious as to what qualifies as a dearth. I realize that during spring, summer, and fall we have various honey flows when a lot of pollen and nectar are available, but does that mean when the flows are over or in between that we are in a dearth?
Right now in my area clover is blooming until the end of July and soon in the mountains (as soon as today) we will have our Sourwood flow. Can anyone help with clarification? If something is blooming does that mean that it's not a dearth?
Very confused...Does anyone feed a healthy hive this time of year due to low flow?
