Hello all. I have not been on in some time and am just now trying to catch up on reading many of the posts. After last year's battle with hive beetles here and a prolonged drought at my property up in Arkansas I lost several of my hives. It was very discouraging and I was almost ready to hang it up. I can't say I did not learn a few a things and like falling off a bicycle I am ready to get back up and start again. Today it is cold and rainy in northeast Texas, say somewhere in the 40's for this area. However, upon seeing a honey bee in my greenhouse I felt I should go take a look and see what was happening at my 2 remaining hives. It just seems that it should be too cool for any activity. After standing there a few minutes I could see some bees coming and going. Not many, but enough to see that they knew what hive they belonged in. That is, except for one bee which came out of one hive and flew over to the other and went on in. Can anyone say if this is normal? Both hives have been fed on the warmer days and they seem to be doing well, bringing in baskets full of pollen and guards posted at the entry. I just can't say I have ever seen any bees that have come and gone from one hive to another unless robbing was an issue in which case there would be multiple bees doing this. What do you think this was?
