Here it is thanksgiving Nov 24th in Kansas and the girls are flying. Seams it has been this way for the last few years and every year I worry if they will make it through the winter since there is not much brood rearing this time of year. The worker bees are out flying every day wearing themselves out in search of nectar and pollen. After all the books say to be successful overwintering bees its best to have young bees going into the winter. Come spring every year I find that I worried for nothing as they made it through yet another winter. So this year as I eat my thanksgiving dinner while watching the bee out looking for one of there own. Im not going to worry and lets see what happens.
