Last weekend I check the beehives and winterized the hives by installing insulation. The bees have been active this past week, with temperatures in the 60’s during the day but dropping to 36 at night.  I have seen them out collecting pollen even today on the few flowers that are left.

I checked on one of the hives today and they have lots of honey stores for the winter. The honeybees were quite active today. They were out collecting pollen and nectar on the flowers that are still in bloom. It is a beautiful and sunny day here. Although it has been getting below freezing at night. I will have to winterize the hives soon.
