Sunny Sky’s

This afternoon the rain stopped and there was a brief period of blue sky’s.

It’s been almost three days since I put the splits in the garage so I took advantage of the brief rain stoppage to put the nucs outside and open them up to let the bees fly. I’m was sure they need a cleansing flight! Once I removed the screens the bees flooded out and began making their orientation flights.

The temps were right around 49 degrees and the sun shining made all the difference.

There were a LOT of dead bees being drug out of the entrances. I sure hope the queens are not in the dead bees pile!  Too cold to check today so I’ll just leave the nucs and hope for the best.
