Mosquito Abatement!

We signed up for notifications when the mosquito abatement sprayers were going to be making the rounds.  This afternoon we got the automated notifications.  Of course I’m out of town but Matt (a squatter in our Apiary) was kind enough to go out and cover the hives.  The chemicals used aren’t supposed to effect the bees since it only kills bugs that are flying.  Since our bees don’t fly at night and the sprayers don’t come around until midnight, we should be ok.  Matt sent me a pic of our girls tucked in for the night.
