How many months a year do your Bees Fly?
« on: March 03, 2004, 08:42:18 PM »
While working on my 2004 Beekeeping page today, I was doing some quick math and realized that we get nearly 7 months of possible warm weather a year here. That is a very liberal number though, it can be as little as 5 if a late Spring occurs.

Best and worse case scenario , how many months can your bees fly each season? Should be an interesting poll.

Here the bees seem to fly any time the temps are over 40F just for a potty break. This past year 03 I watched the girls buzzing about on March 22nd then settle back for about 7 days when the temps went into the low 40F with damp air. They were flying yet during a day in Nov 03 when the temp hit 86F, and again one day in January04 when it hit 49F.
