It's been raining everyday since I brought the bees home a week ago, so today, even though it's somewhat cloudy, they all seem to be out doing their thing. I even had to open up the entrance reducer a bit. I had a real traffic jam. All those poor little girls with their piles of pollen couldn't get in the door.
That being said, I'm surprised at the amount of pollen coming in considering I was pumping 6 inches of water out of my basement yesterday due to the heavy rain.
Anyone in MA seen a reddish orange pollen?
