My BEES survived winter!!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Last year, I realized on March 14th that my one hive had died. Complete devastation.

 

Today, I am pleased to say that my TWO hives survived! They were both very active today and already collecting pollen (which is rare for early march in northern Indiana!). I could not figure out where the pollen was coming from, but I realized the huge 100 year old maple in the back yard is blooming :D I am so happy!

 

I recently bought the supplies necessary to catch a swarm. I read online the best time is around Mother's day... But I am curious if it will be sooner, due to the warmer weather? We shall see ;)
