Warm Winter = Bee Tea

In many places this winter has brought temperatures way above normal. The bees have been flying and not really getting anything, at the most a little bit of pollen. They don't create the quiet cluster and are feeding too much on their winter stores. It is very important to check the hives for food supply at this time, first by lifting the hive from the back; if this doesn't give you a good estimate, you will have to quickly open the hive on a warmer day and check the supply. If you have to feed, don't forget to do this with a healing tea and honey found at our online store.
