It's getting a little warmer and when springs officially comes and the nectar starts to flow it's good to be ready for your colonies to expand. Expansion also gives you the opportunity to split your hive or if you hive is already big, you can split to keep them a more managable size. Ray will be speaking and showing us how.

When our bees leave the hive they forage for water, pollen and nectar. Today we looked at Melissa's Garden list of 5 top forage plants: borage, tansy, echium, goldenrod and lemon balm. For more information, check out their site. We also found a fun guide to nectar and pollen color by season from Eversweet Apiaries.
