Could i be in a honey flow
« on: July 02, 2007, 01:45:24 AM »

  Today i took two supers and then i went to check on two of my package swarms from the spring and found that one of them is drawing out the super and the other one is busting out of the seams with bees so i added a super on them. Now the past few days we had rain and it had to be good because it put some much needed water in my pond which was dryed up i see sourwood blooming and i notice today my girls were flying pass my front door heading into the woods all of my hive were going at it you could stand on my back step and see bees flying pass. Could the rain and the change in the temp. cause the sourwood blooms to really put out because they are have been going at it like crazy for the pass week and they are not bring in much pollen andd my two nucs are slow at building up but one of them i put a medium super on so they could have some room but my feral nuc they are working good but they still have one frame to draw out and have not touched it.

Yeaaarp I think we caught a flow here in NN.  I took 5 frames out of the shallow on a hive today even though I don't have frames to put in hahaha...it's gonna be a mess, but whatever.;  I ordered 10 more frames - just excited about the honey, which is beyond delish.
