    Re: Minor flow in the Atlanta area?

    Hi, Dan,

    this is a good point, too. I didn't think about it much. Would appreciate any thoughts you have about when to have a hummingbird feeder up or not.

    regards,

    This is a very good point.

    Re: Minor flow in the Atlanta area?

    Hi, Dan,

    Minor flow in the Atlanta area?

    Hi, all,

    I've noticed a pickup in the activity of my hives over the past couple of weeks and the goldenrod are starting to bloom. Anyone else seeing a "minor" fall flow?

    Thanks,

    Re: Fedor Lazutin - where exactly did he live?

    Looking at the temperature record for overnight lows, it looks like April May in Kaluga Russia is like February March in Lilburn GA!

    Here is a video that contrasts. The entrance is very hot; the bees are around the hole.

    Night in the Apiary

    Hey, y'all,

    I wanted to start a thread that was about night time observations. These are external observations. NEVER NEVER open a bee hive @ night unless you really know what you are doing.

    Bees in the trash

    yesterday, I was at the gas station and I saw honey bees going in the trash by the pump.
