As Always, Hello to All,

The last time I wrote we were experiencing snow and freezing rain.  Today the springtime that we were promised has arrived.  Grass is growing, flowering trees are in full bloom, and hopefully hives are bursting.  Well, maybe not quite bursting.  Maybe enough open comb to discourage swarming.  And with the springtime comes busy times for the beekeeper.

Hello to All,

As I write this, light snow is falling.  I thought they promised us a spring.  Have you been into your bees yet?  I applied oxalic acid in late February and was astonished at the mite drop, both in the effectiveness of the treatment, and the infestation of mites.  This is a situation that I’m afraid we will have to contend with.
