I just did an inspection yesterday. I have 8 hives and each hive seems healthy and strong.
I was shocked
to find only one medium super filled with honey, but it's been there since mid July.
The super above nothing!! zip, zero, nada! It's been on there for a month and a half.....no drawn comb either.
Almost no honey in the 2 lower brood boxes.
They had plenty of pollen and plenty of brood, but I did not even see any collected nectar.
I still can't believe it, I spoke to a pro beek who I buy my bees from and she said she has no honey this year.
Lots of Goldenrod around but it's been too dry and it's not poppin'
