March is here! This is an integral time for the health of your bees. Just because the temperature is increasing, doesn’t mean your bees will survive. You’ll likely see lots of bee deaths this month, so it’s important to check the hive and clear out the dead bees to ensure proper ventilation into the hive. A good time to check on the bees is on the days when the temperature hits 50 F.
When you’re checking on your bees on those warmer days, be sure they have enough food. It’s important your bees have adequate amounts of sugar patties. Check out this link, for a great recipe on how to make your own sugar patties at home.
If you haven’t already, now is the time to start planning for Spring. Order your bees now on our website to ensure you will have them in May! We have 5 frame Nucs, 9 Frame Deep Nucs, mated queens, and other package options available.
