Hi all,

I just got my first hive ever on Sunday, and It's been a wonderful exprience so far.

I did notice that there are no bees coming in with sacks of pollen. Is that normal? I'm guessing they're getting nectar, vs Pollen. What is one use for versus the other?

Thanks

Welcome to beekeeping! What part of DFW are you in?

The pollen is primarily used for brood production where as the nectar is used for both brood and a general food source for the entire colony.

Mine are in the backyard. Thanks to Hambone I've got two hives this year. My two from last year died on me.

Just gotta hide the bacon! lol
