2022 Mar 6 – Checking In

Today was a good day to peek in the hives, so I opened a few up to see how they are faring. They are raising bees, storing nectar, and otherwise taking their late winter activities seriously. My two top bar hives were strong, though they each had some dampness on the bottom board. The Langstroth hives I checked seem good, with both brood and food. Unless we get a freaky stretch of weather, but I think my 8 hives have made it through the winter.

May you prosper and find honey.

This is comb from the hive I call Saturn2 on March 6, 2022. You see the brood at the bottom (the right side of the comb). This must be where they clustered overwinter and so started raising their spring bees.
