Alan's Bee Chronicles - Feed supply for my Hives

I've been waiting for a sunny day to check the feed supply for my three hives. It's important to make sure that your hives have enough to eat if their winter stores are running low.

Thanks to the nice weather here in Oregon over the past few weeks, I was able to add some granulated sugar to my hives so they had enough to eat. I was lucky to have my 8 year old son John join me for the process! We had a great time checking up on the hives and giving our friends a bit of food during the lean winter times.

I like this hive setup because the window allows you to see the bees moving between the frames. If you're interested, you can purchase it here. Even though we're still in the depths of winter, it’s never too early to start planning for colony exapnsionI've been waiting for a sunny day to check the feed supply for my three hives.
