Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?
George Imerie lived in Maryland, about 150 miles north of me. The weather he described is accurate. For the past 25 years living in Richmond, I know that there will be several very warm days in January. Some years I have seen it as high as 70°F. Briefly. February, not so much. That is typically our coldest month. Many years our Spring starts in early March. Bear in mind that George was writing specifically to MD beekeepers.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
