It's almost bee time!
We can't wait for our colonies to get growing but brood too early can trap the cluster without food in reach during a cold snap.
These warm days we're getting is a good opportunity to make sure the girls have plenty of food. As brood rearing starts in the next few weeks the colony will begin to quickly consume their stores.
This is a good time to knock down mite numbers for the healthiest colonies possible to start spring.
While we wait for spring, might as well have some fun with last year's photos
