Two weeks ago I went to check on the hives. The temperature got into the mid 40’s and the girls were out taking “cleansing” flights. Bee’s will not go to the bathroom in the hive. This was after a pretty long cold snap so as you can imagine the ground in fron of the hive was a mess. Regardless, it was great to see the bee’s out and.. well.. alive!
This coming weekend it’s supposed to get into the 40’s again and we’ll see if they survived this latest cold snap where we had wind chill temps waaaaaay below zero.
