Warm spring encourages an early start to bee season

Email

Welcome back to the Beehive. What an exciting time of year to be a beekeeper. The warm temperatures these last few weeks have allowed me to open up my hives and get a good idea of their health. I have to say, I was very surprised.

About 60 percent of my hives made it through the winter in great shape. When I opened the hives, I saw that the queens have started laying eggs, which means we will be having newborn bees in 21 days.
