Almost Time to Pull Honey

The last few weeks have been great honey weather.  Hot, sunny and dry.  With the hot weather the bees have to regulate the temperature in the hive.  Their first instinct is to put attendants on the landing board fanning their wings to move cool air into the hive.  The second is for bees to move out of the hive to create more room for air flow, that’s what they doing here in this photo.  The nectar is flowing and the bees are working hard, every evening in the bee yard you can smell the sweet odor of honey in the air.  We added supers last week to give them more room.  In a few weeks when the first frost hits the fall flowers will loose their flowers and that will be it for the year.
