i know the guys in la. and florida are starting to see some activity but what is everybody around mid ga., al. and ms. finding right now?
i bought 3 nucs from a guy close to atlanta this week and one has capped drone brood and the field bees were bringing bright red pollen (i'm assuming red maple). these are supposed to have vsh genetics so i'm wondering if that has anything to do with that has something to do with the early drones.
anyway, my hives all have a pretty good amount of brood (3 to 4 deep frames solid capped) but i haven't noticed any drone cells. so, what are all the other coastal plains and fall line beekeepers seeing right now?
