spring 2015

bee, bee cozy, beekeeping, swarm trap, tulip poplar,
Reached yet another bloom marker, Tulip Poplar flowers - and with some weather luck, more nectar forage for the bees.  Already, other nectar flows required that I add more medium boxes to two over-wintered hives which are busting with bees.

Earlier this year, I replaced two hanging 5-frame swarm traps with 8-frame swarm traps and removed the bee cozy.  Scouting of the new traps began in early March - stay tuned for move-in news.
