This is the result of feeding bees pollen sub September-Feb. These were split before almonds, and after almonds. The cherries and apples also give them a boost. Bees are stuffed with dandelion honey as well.

What is the guess on how much P sub they take in that period?

I hope you the best for honey this year.

RAK! Now thats a hive! I still dont get how people can work such a highly populated hive. I picked my nucs up from Sunrise yesterday. I thought they had some good looking bees! Can't wait to see what your nucs will be like! Your really doing a good job. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that!

Are you running your hives that highly populated like that as a standard? I would think they're ready for swarming!

These hives get busted up into 3-4 singles. We mix our own pollen sub. Family recipe.
