Maybe “they’re out” would be the more accurate title….
We had our first nice stretch of good days this weekend, and Hives 1, 3, and 5 were out in full force today. I even saw them gathering water and a touch of pollen, which always makes me wonder where on earth they find it this time of year. Nothing is in bloom just yet, though spring is truly just around the corner.
I’m happy to note that all three survivor hives are quite heavy still and had large numbers of bees. All good signs for the nucs I’m hoping to get out of them here in the next few weeks.
