I. Yesterday I went out to the hill to make sure that the bees were ready for the winter.
II. Remarkably, the bees can still find pollen in early November here in southeast Michigan.
III. Our bees basically do what they want. The two hives I combined last month in no way combined as I thought they would. I think they will make it, however, as they have plenty of stores and numbers.
IV. The top entrances are open.
V. We’ll come out on the warm winter days with the sun.
