This week, I will remove the insulation from the inside and outside of my hives all except the outer cover. Also, I will remove the sugar water by June 1st. I purchased a kiddy pool at a garage sale for $1.00 to capture rain water but to keep the bees from drowning I will float sticks or a piece of plywood in the pool. Another thing I have already done is increase the size of my entrance reducer. Now, all that needs to be done is a thorough hive check every 10 days, looking for queen cells.
