What should we be doing with our hives this month?
- If there is a day with warm enough temperatures and no wind, you can take a peek into your hives to see how your bees are doing.
- See where your bees are. If they are at the top of the hive, then you need to be feeding them with fondant or a sugar board. You can also give them a winter patty.
- If you haven’t already, make sure your electric fences are cleaned out and up and running. There have already been bear sightings in the northern part of the state.
- Spring Bee Orders – If you will need bees this spring, you need to order ASAP!
Suppliers of packages, nucs and complete hives are running very low this year.
