Ohio 6-30-10. I was at my hives and happened to see a couple drones on the ground out front. Then i saw a worker bee pulling a drone pupau onto the porch. My question, Is this normal for this time of year. Thank you in advance, Ken

at least 5 frames of syrup/honey. id check about every 10 days. with a little practice, you can "heft" the back of the hive (tilt it forward)and judge weather you're losing weight (eating down the stores) during the dearth.
