It has been 90degrees for over a month and the bees have been sooo busy putting pollen and nectar away for the winter. I have been so worried about them as up until a month ago our weather had not been conducive to happy foraging and the bees had not put much away! We atrted feeding them honey from last years draw and man that was just the kick they needed, plus the bonus of the hot weather...they kicked it into overdrive and filled all of their boxes!!! Just in time too; they crappy weather just rolled in! You gotta love western Washington! Even hough the bees made up for lots tim and have lots of honey, we are leaving everylast golden drop for them. "They" are predicting a nasty weather!!!
