The sun came out today after some heavy wind and rain that washed away what I hope is the last of the snow. The temperature went up to 11°C. I scraped out some dead stinky bees and debris from the bottom boards of both hives. Hive #2 hasn’t been too active around its bottom entrance this year. Hive #1 is a different story.
I still don’t know where they’re getting the pollen, but I’m impressed.
