Hope you got a chance to get out and check on your hives during this last Friday and Saturday (February 22nd and 23rd) warm-up! All my hives have hard candy above the top frames. I had a disappointment in losing a hive, it had consumed all the hard candy before I added more. I also had a pleasant surprise, a hive I had thought was dead and was going to clean out had a nice cluster of live bees in it!
Be sure to clean out any dead hives while it is still cold! It will be a moldy stinky mess if you wait. Learn from my mistakes!
Hope to see you all on Tuesday, February 26 at 6:30 PM at Cross Roads.
We will be doing some frame assembly and general talk about preparation for the arrival of the bees.
If you have any tips or tricks to share please bring them along!
