Bob's Flower and Hive Report

October 2013 Meeting

Hive Report

Drones within the hive are almost all gone. Queen excluders should be removed to prevent the queen from freezing. If treating, be aware of the temperature range that treatment is most effective. When inspecting a hive, if a frame is removed, be sure to put it back in the same place it was taken from.

Flower Report

White aster, yellow aster or iron weed, frost weed. Frost seems not to hurt aster. If a strong odor is noticed from the hive, more than likely, it is from the nectar of aster. Also some white clover, smart weed, knock out roses, camellias are blooming.
