First beehive inspection of the year

3 posts in this topic

Hello fellow wasp and bee folks,

 

Sorry I have not posted in a long time as there has not been much in terms of bees and wasps but I got some pics of the first beehive inspection of the 2018 season. All 8 hives made it thru but one was about dead due to lack of food and tracheal mites but I have since turned that hive around and they are doing well. The colonies inside the horizontal hives still have a lot of honey left and some of it is crystallized. Right now the pollen they are gathering is from maples and spotted purple dead nettle

 

Regards,

Michael

Excellent photos! The hives look very healthy. Do you know if any drones are produced at this time of year ?
