I haven’t mentioned Bee keeping for a while. We are new to bee keeping and are learning quite a bit.
June was rainy and limited forage, so we gave them feed. July looked great until we got 3 weeks of 100+ degrees, and things went backwards.
Our master bee keeper call these long dry spells a “Dirth”.
So we took off our top boxes, started feed once again, and this weekend we were really pleased to see our population increasing.
See the white dot we painted on her? We will be better able to find her next time.
I’m thinking we should call her HRH Elinore, the Elusive.
A curtsy would be appropriate, but not compulsory.
