Re: Is It Possible To BE Gone For The Summer?
Absolutely or at least I did last summer, and I either got really lucky, or it's not a problem. My brother and I bought a business one year ago this coming Saturday. From the first of June until March of this year, I did not touch my hives. They all did very well. Granted it was my first year, so I was probably somewhat immune to some of the problems that face older hives.

The more I learn about bees, the less I know, but the tide is turning.
