I was down to Texas last week to check on the bees, and they seem to be enjoying the warm weather. Could not have asked for nicer weather while I was down there, sunny and mid 50’s to 60 out. We lost one hive which was most likely from the trip down to Texas, but since it was a mean one, I am not to upset. We had to feed 5 hives that were lite on stores. I will be head back down at the end of January to check them again and start feeding pollen patties to jump-start the queens laying.
