New Pollens Available!!!

Have you noticed?  Chokecherry trees are in full-blossom right now so our bees are in seventh heaven!!  They deffinitely no longer need sugar syrup.  If you have not pulled your feeder(s) then do so and replace them with a blank or drawn-out frame. You have probably noticed that with all the rain we've been having, we also have yellow and white pollen floating on top of puddles. The bees may have trouble harvesting pollen from blossoms since most of it has been washed away by the rain.  Surprisingly, though, they can still gather the pollen from puddles.
