Update from the farm

Last week when the weather was mild I was able to check on my hives. I ventured out to the apiary with a big piece of cardboard to lay on while on the ground under the hives. I removed the insulation from under the hive stands then removed the bottom board insert. One hive might have suffered some losses, but the rest looked good and when I tapped on the screen, I could hear buzzing which is a great sign. I replaced all of the insulation and made sure they were cozy once again. If a beekeeper has suffered losses, the replacements need to be ordered early because they often sell out. I like to check on mine as soon as I get a nice day in February to prevent being caught in a situation where I need replacements but can’t find any local nucleus hives.
