It was well in the 60s today. So warm! Just 5 days ago... it was snowing! I'm not sure what's up with this weather! I took advantage of the weather and decided to open the hive for an inspection! We've already winterized the hive by sealing up any cracks with duct tape and putting in a mouse guard. It's a little strange to have a hive inspection this late in the season! We are mid-way into November and usually in the Northeast, it would be really too cold to open the hive. When I got to the hive, I saw that there were lots of bees out! The girls were enjoying the warm weather as well! I installed a new bungee cord on the hive to keep the water container from blowing off the roof. The last storm blew that thing clear off and onto the street!
