Ok i checked on my hives that i hived a week or so ago. To find that the bees have already drawn 7 out of ten frames in one of the hives. Is this normal?

Also i noticed on one of my bee yards the bees were bringing in bright red pollen. Does anybody have any idea what this pollen is? I have never seen that color before.


Thanks all!!!

I know chic-weed makes red pollen.  It is a low growing plant with many small purple flowers.  It is a weed plant, but I'm sure other plants can make red pollen too.

That's wonderfully fast for getting that much drawn comb. Sounds like a great hive.

Red pollen can also be from Maple trees
