    Color of pollen chart for Florida/South Ga only?

    Not sure if there is such a thing... If so I just thought it would be kind of cool to know what kind pollen is coming in by color, Trees; Bush, Flowers. Not sure if it is that simple. I've been seeing Orange and Yellow Pollen coming into the hives and was just curious.

    Looking for region (Fl and south Ga, not just a wide range)

    Best of luck, Arkwood. I don't want this to sound like a complaint, but, anything your find is just a starting point. Beekeeping is regional (to the max), and experience and observation will trump anything on the web. :)

    arkwood,
    go here to this thread, there are 3 links to the 'color of pollen'.
    the color of pollen

    also, go here:
    honey bee forage map

    click on georgia and/or florida for what nectar/pollen sources are available for your bees.

    these will give you a good general idea of what's blooming, when, and what they are bringing in.
