Congrats to your daughters. It looks like they are fairly comfortable with the bees. That will help them a lot. This site is great for all kinds of information. I am sure you all will have lots of fun.
No drought here. We are a little behind normal, but not bad. We are actually in Spring Hill, not Junction City. Not sure how that happened in my profile. Removed the other hive top feeder last night so both have a super on now.Welcome, I just spent last weekend in Syracuse and Garden city. Are you getting the same drought that western Kansas is getting? I had the opportunity to look at one beehive in Syracuse and they seem to be doing well even though it is so dry. I lived quite a while near Manhattan so I know how different the landscape gets from one end of the state to another.
Best of luck and hope they enjoy the bees.
