The Bees Are Enjoying Their New Candy Board

It’s almost one month later and the bees are still well fed.

It’s January, but the temperature is above 50 degrees F today, a perfect opportunity to check on my bees and the state of the candy board. The bees are out and about enjoying the warm weather.

Lifting the cover and looking inside, I discover clusters of bees all over the candy.  So far, so good.  I really like this feeding system.  There is plenty of food for the bees and they are loving every inch of it!

A quick peek down the hole reveals nothing but bees, bees and more bees.  I didn’t bother to open it up anymore because they are doing great and that’s all I need to know.
