My Honeybees

Backyard Beekeeping

5/4/13 – Checked on the beehives

Leave a comment

Checked on both of the beehives yesterday and they are doing great. Both hives have several frames of capped and uncapped brood. I gave them another deep with 4 frames of honey and drawn out frames. Since I have so much honey left over from last year, I’m feeding them honey instead of sugar water.

The bees should not be starving right now with all of the flowering trees and flowers. There are lots of open flowers and flowering trees blooming. Right by the hive is a maple tree with blooms, tulips, daffodils and irises.


The weather forecast looks great for this week. The temperatures will be in the 70’s and 80’s. The bees should be happy this week.
