A Warm Day

As the temperature rose above 50 degrees on Sunday the bees became active. Making their cleansing flights and removing bees who had died in the hive.

With all the pushing and shoving going on I removed the entrance reducer (used to limit the amount of cold air entering the hive) to give them more room to carry out their chores.

We're pleased to see that they seem to have made it through this much of the winter successfully and are looking forward to a good crop of honey next fall.
