When is the bloom predicted in the Hudson Valley? Are you sending some up to Chazy too?

The Bloom for New Paltz is opening now, Will have all my bees in the New Paltz area delivered by Friday May 9th.

I do deliver to Chazy, they are at least a week off, maybe more.

Our trees are just budding out so I know I didn't lose any this winter. I did a willy nilly split to one hive May 7. I hope I did it early enough.

Just got the calls, heading to New Paltz Monday to pull the bees back out. Bees leave for Chazy NY, Friday Morning.

Just barely a week. Are the flowers falling already? Or has the weather been so good that the orchard manager figures fruit set was accomplished, so he wants to get a spray on?

I figured that a late bloom might mean a compressed bloom period.

Probably some of each.

All it takes is one good day of flight when flowers are open, from what my growers tell me.

I took my second load to Wolcott. Plenty of bloom there. Got a call for another 50 hives and another guy who wants 40 more. But I don't have them.
