Record-setting rain this spring, and maybe a break for June.....but is it too late for the honey build up? Other local beekeepers are saying the same thing I'm seeing, that the honey stores are well behind what we would normally see at this point in the spring. Let's hope for a strong June or we'll be waiting for next year to get honey in the bottle. On the positive side, the bees are looking strong. All of my hives are looking good for now, which is a good sign if we get an extended stretch of good weather. On a related note, I'm starting to see lots of swarms and getting some extraction calls. If you know of someone who needs bees extracted, please give me a call. I'd much rather find a way to save the bees than exterminate.
