My Backyard Bees

Sharon Livesey Beekeeping Blog

During the last Autumn, I placed a small colony of bees which only covered about one frame into a four-frame nucleus box. The bees did not have very long to collect nectar and pollen to complete their winter supplies. I was apprehensive as to whether they would make it through the winter without starving out. Well, here we are in September and those little bees are still flying in and out of that little entrance of that box. Aren’t they so resilient? Amazing bees!
