I got into my beehives last Friday to see how they fared over the winter months. We had a long winter here in Indiana. Snow on the ground from the end of November until March. Then it seems like Spring came and stayed! WOOHOO! I had two hives die, and four live. I still have two hives to check in my back yard. We will be getting into my hives a few times this summer. I hope you enjoy it!
Does everyone know if you click on an image (or maybe it's double click) it will get much bigger? So, if you click on the image below, you will see all of the pollen my honey bees are carrying into their hive. They put it in the little 'baskets' on their hind legs. This is a good thing. Especially for April.
Below is a hive with capped brood (in the center) larvae, and honey on the outer edge. See the little tiny white wormy looking things? That's baby bees! I'm a proud mama.
