    Re: Planning for my first bee's come spring

    Don't worry about the full sun thing. Not a necessity. Actually a hindrance if it gets real hot.

    and congrats for taking the plunge!

    recommendations for winter wrap

    Well, lucky me, my first year with bees going into some cold weather!

    What do people recommend for wrapping boxes for insulation?

    Cool. Wouldn't dream of doing that in GA, they would hate it in our summer.

    Re: Tulsi forage

    Yeah, the other thing about it, it has been growing like a monster in our garden box, spreading all over the place.
    I plan to plant it around the bee hives next spring!

    Tulsi forage

    This morning 49 degrees F and there were many bees working the tulsi my wife had planted several months ago. They have loved this tulsi for many moons and it is still flowering!

    Hi, all,

    I was just wondering what others have observed as far as lowest foraging temperature? Today the girls were bringing pollen back in around 55 degrees.

    And what kind of pollen this time...

    Re: Hands off Beekeeping.....for the most part.

    Last internal inspection June 29, 2019. We'll see. I'm not pretending this is the best way. It is experimental and I am making observations about different hive designs and entrances.

    Re: goldenrod smell

    Hey, Dan,

    is it because of a different temperature zone or elevation, do you think? We're about 1000 feet above sea level here. I thought we had similar weather patterns?

    Hi, all,

    my strongest hive is smelling like what I think is goldenrod honey. Can't describe the smell exactly other than it is very different from what I would smell earlier this year.
