    Default Dry Weather

    It's hot and dry here now. There are lots of weeds and prairie flowers that are blooming anyway. I was wondering if the nectar dries up quickly even if the flowers are blooming good? Also does the hot, dry weather affect the pollen? Thanks.

    Some plants will stop puttin out pollen (or it melts) if it gets too hot.

    yes plants stop producing nectar and pollen in dry conditions. We need rain. It will be dry for atleast another week, 7 day prediction below.

    We are really dry here as well. The bees are really bringing in a lot of pollen from something and there is a bunch in the hives. Not that much honey, but lots of pollen.

    I'm in Northeast Missouri. We had 2" of rain this morning. First rain since mid-July. I saw a lot of goldenrod opened up this afternoon. Hope it triggers a flow.
