Per discussion in the February Meeting, this blog category will allow our members to post when they see their first honey flow, what area are the bees in, and what major nectar sources are in bloom at that time. Later, we can accumulate comments from the web site as well as club members log information to come up with an idea of when the honey flow starts and stops in each area.
- Color Chart to identify Pollen Sources
- Pollen.com and PollenLibrary.com both allow you to enter your zip code to get a report of plants flowering in your area — including trees, weeds and grasses.
These are Don Sargent’s bees outside of Whitewood on Easter Sunday. They are bringing in bright orange pollen and some cream colored pollen. The Bees did not rest on their Easter Sunday.
