A few bees were flying today. Temperatures are in the mid 40F. There was activity at the protein feeders and evidence of supplement being carried back to the hives.
The BroodMinder monitored hive continues to have brood area temperatures higher than the other monitor at the top of the hive and much higher that ambient. Dare I hope for a live queen and a hive surviving the winter?
About 60 more days to first pollen – Maple trees and dandelions. Bring it on!
