when i got home i took a walk out to the apiary because this is the first warmish day in a couple weeks. the weather has not been cooperating for us here as far.
i saw 5 hives i was sure had died this winter...had bees coming and going. AND bringing in pollen. i thought maybe some robbing mellow robbing was going on by the colonies i knew had made it. i popped the lids quick and nope....clusters of bees in each one....feeding on some leftover dry sugar. im a pretty happy beek right now
tomorrow will be the first day of full inspections this season.
im thinking of making some 2-3 frame splits in a week or soo depending on how they build up by then.
im just happy to have more hives to deal with than i was figuring on.
