It's mid-Jan in NYC and I still have drones in my hive!

I feel like that's a pretty good sign? Good food stores? It was warm this weekend and I saw plenty of ladies coming and going on cleansing flights and some drones hanging out on the landing pad.

Opinions? Usually all the drones get kicked out earlier on to conserve food but I haven't really seen any being kicked out and I'm up there fairly often.

It depends on the hive, but many hives still have drones throughout the season. :) A lot of them get evicted, but not necessarily all of them!

Glad to see you're bees are still going strong. Spring is nigh!
