Todays’ inspections show very little coming into the hives; fortunately all seem to have plenty of stores from the flow of nectar earlier in the season. There will be a need to monitor in the coming weeks and maybe even put an early feed on if the flow of nectar dries up completely. To add to this the wasps are beginning to appear at some hive entrances determined to sneak past the guard bees at the entrance; I’ve already started making some wasp traps and they will go out in the next week or so.
