Hi everyone, I hope you all are managing through the Coronavirus without too much hard ache. I just wanted to lighten the mood for a moment and let you see a dronesare hatching via a short video I shot in the first week of March. These were some of the first patches of drone brood in comb I had seen hatch this year. At that time, we were at least another 35 days out from have established drone congregation areas for the season.
The coronavirus might be adversely effecting our lives right now, but thankfully it not curtailing their lives. Have you notified your bees of the approaching bloom by put on your supers yet? In our area, supers should be put on by mid to late March. I believe the black locust bloom will start in the 3rd week of April.
Stay healthy and safe,
