Yer livin the dream and I am dreading the day my nucs are promised! I thought I was wintering well, but I have some thin hives that I planned on splitting the middle of April. Hoping that Carnie brood explosion gets going any day! Was a gorgeous day today and the bees were out looking for trailer house roof caulking or whatever they were bringing back for pollen. Maybe them being out made the hives look so much less populated. My hives had much bigger populations last year at this time, but we had no winter either. Guess my need to worry about what I can't help is why I am not rich.
