When inspecting the colony I have noticed some nectar that is red. Are there plants that produce red nectar or are my bees raiding a hummingbird feeder? I am in town so there are all kinds of flowering ornamental plants around.

My guess is humming bird feeder....but you can always follow them to see where they're going. :D

Knotweed seems to be reddish. Just showed up in my hives In Western WA. Too much to be hummingbird feeders I think.

We are In serious winter preps. I gave it 5 days to see how much and wether it’s worth trying for a small varietal honey crop if not.

Am in wrong phone for pictures. Will put some up tomorrow from regular phone.
