Photos First Spring Inspection Jeremy catching a swarm – April 2013 Marian’s Bee Hive – Stars & Stripes : First Spring Inspection We had a “visitor” from the area 🙂 This hive was in Boones Mill, Virginia. Jeff Jenner removed it and saved the queen … Hooray for survivor genetics! Jeff asks: “Checked your bees lately? We’re out of our main nectar flows by now and it is time to start checking to see if you need to feed them for the upcoming winter.
