Are your bees getting hungry?

 

 

 

 

 

 

On February 20, Chuck Bauer took advantage of a break in the weather to check on his bees. This is his report of what he found....

"Today in my bee yard it was 59 degrees, between the raindrops,(I got soaked at the tail-end of the job) I took advantage to put some sugar blocks in my hives. Some hives have eaten the sugar blocks I put in at the beginning of January, others had eaten most of the blocks, a couple hardly touched then. So I ended up putting 45 pounds of sugar blocks in 16 hives. I have 2 blocks left over for a nuc that I didn't get to.  I'll get it at the next warm-up"
