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!
You are blessed that that was the only thing that was blown off into the streets!ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear the bees are doing OK.ReplyDelete
