I have been able to catch my breath this week some. The cold weather is keeping the bees and me inside, lol. The honey bee’s beautiful buzz and flight to and from has completely stopped. I personally don’t like it! The positive is that the bees are doing well, staying inside the hive clustered tightly keeping warm. I can not see the female bees inside; remember all the males were evicted from the hive in late fall. Although I can place my ear on the outside of the hive body and hear the girls gently vibrating (sounds like humming) to keep warm. They will move ever so slowly within the hive from frame to frame eating their winter stores.
