We visited all our yards and hives the last two days during our 54 degree heat wave. We have had to snowshoe out to some of our yards since our Jeep was blocked by 6 foot piles of snow. Right now our 120 hives are looking good – we have about 15 percent losses but there is 6 weeks left to this winter and we could get hit hard again by old man winter. Fondant has been left in all living hives…. It is such a good feeling to see a hive looking strong in February!!
