Re: 2015 Pepper Flow
I have watched Pepper since it started to bloom in mid September, watching and waiting to see Pepper bushes full of bees. I guess the nectar doesn't begin the same time as the bloom because so far I have seen very few bees on them. I check in town, in the country, same deal. I have not looked in a few days but I will look again tomorrow. I hope you are correct. I'm not that far from you in Lehigh Acres and I have hives in Alva and LaBelle. I have a few bait hives in Moore Haven, at a winter place of one of the members here. We started that a few years ago when he had an empty hive in the yard that a swarm moved in, and he gave it to me and now I keep a couple bait hives there and typically get 2 swarms or more every year.
