The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
When the sun comes out in March so do the bees.
They are enjoying the crocus emergence as much as we do.
It time for a hive check.
When there are bees on the landing platform with pollen in their leg bags it means there are baby bees to be fed.
It means that the hive colony is cranking up the expectation for the spring preparations.
New baby bees are needed for the upcoming spring and summer of flowers.
It’s important not to disturb the hive unless it’s warm. The hive is at 34 degrees so cold air can really disrupt the atmosphere.
This hive had a great stack of honey towards the back of the hive away from the end entrance.
We didn’t disturb the brood section of the hive at this point. There’s plenty of signs that they are doing well so far.
