The active season is almost upon us. I have kept quiet over winter anxious to see how my colonies have fared. I will not inspect until well into April, but I am pleased to see bees flying and returning laden with pollen from all but 3 hives and I wintered over 50. So here’s hoping that April upholds those figures for me.
