Since the weather the past few weeks has been warm enough for the lilies and daffodils to bloom, it hasn't been hard for the bees to find pollen sources right now.
When I got home from work today my son Garrison was standing in the yard watching the bees bring in pollen, so I grabbed my camera.
Look how bright the yellow pollen is on the bee in the middle below.
The girls are bringing in supplies fast, which is necessary to keep up with the speed of the queen raising brood.
I think what I'm going to do is skip reducing the hive from two deep boxes to one, and just reverse them now.
I think I'll add a hive top feeder and give them a little 2:1 syrup to further stimulate brood rearing.
I'm planning to make a split from this hive in early April, so extra stimulation to raise more brood is good.
