Harvesting in Colorado

1079 1
Beekeepers from Colorado, when do you usually harvest the honey for the last time. To me it looks like the flow seems to be slowing down. I was thinking of harvesting in the middle of the august. I called colorado beekeeper association, they told me at the end of august, but I want to make sure that my bees collect enough honey for themselves for the winter.

I'm in Colorado Springs and I normally harvest in late June and early September. This year my first harvest was last week because of the drought in June and early July. Took off about 40#/hive. With recent rains I hope to take a Fall harvest in early September, if possible.

I do Fall feed with 2:1 syrup and fondant during the winter. I also insulate/wrap hives during the Winter.
