Fall Feeding

Yesterday marked the completion of my Fall mite treatment.

The queens are back on task as very young larva and eggs were seem in the nest area. It has been raining more than normal for August, so much so that I had to string trim around the hives.

Nature is following her usual August plan so not much is blooming although some hives were bringing in pollen. I was a bit surprised to find honey stores low. As I can’t count on a Fall honey flow, I’ll be off to the sugar shack! Light feeding is not a bad thing as it tends to keep the queens laying and the hive strong with plenty of young fat workers.
