12 November 2017 Bee Visit

I fed the bees today.  The small hive didn’t make it, I think they were robbed.  They were too weak to go in there at this time of year.

The bees were calm, pleasant, almost friendly seeming and excited about food.  Lots of bees coming in and out. Lavender and rosemary are in bloom here.

There were a few ants here and there, so I roughed up the grease on the legs of the stands and put down more ant traps.

The neighbor was out on his tractor, so I didn’t open any hives today.  Besides, it was cloudy and cool.  Everything looked gray and subdued.  Not a good day for peeling the roof off of anyone’s house.
