Bees

Today I was able to see how the pollen substitute was being taken by the bees.

I still don’t know if it is helping them, but they like it.

If nothing else I know all of my hives are alive, I questioned one the other day. Some times if a hive is dead or almost dead, bees will rob from it and so many bees can be stealing that it appears that the hive is healthy from the outside, a for sure way to know bees are living in the hive with out taking it apart is to watch for bees coming in with food, with the pollen substitute I put out the bees were dusted white, all of the hives had bees coming into them, bees that are stealing don’t bring in food to the hive they are stealing from.

Just a stay at home Dad trying to become more self sufficient in a world getting more dependent. It’s easy to get lost in all the things of the world, sometimes the best therapy is getting your hands dirty and growing something good!
