Yellow Snow Dots – the Bees Are Fine

We’ve been experiencing a bit of a cold spell so the bees haven’t had many opportunities to get out for cleansing flights. While I know they were doing well before the cold snap, I always wonder if they are continuing to do well when I can’t check in on them. This past weekend it warmed up a bit for a short time but I wasn’t able to make it to the apiary during the time they would have been flying. When I did stop by, just as the sun was going down, it was clear that they had been quite active with cleansing flights and were doing just fine. Remember, don’t eat yellow snow.
