Fall Flow in Charlotte, NC area?

860 Views 8 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Smokeybee
I live in an area with no fall nectar flow. A friend of a friend offered to let me use her property in Huntersville, NC which is on the northwest side of Charlotte. I put three colonies there a few days ago as an experiment.

Can anyone tell me if I should expect to get a flow there this time of year?

At best, they will pack up the brood chamber and one shallow winter super.
Golden rod starts middle Sept. and the white aster bloom there after. They last till a little after the first frost. You'll know when they are bringing in aster nectar. Your hives will smell like rotten fish or your old old dirty socks. It doesn't bother the bee's
