I saw my first flying drones of the year yesterday, actually I heard them first and started looking. Guard bees let them go right back in, I consider that a good thing. 3 different hives. If only 1 hive, I would have worried about a drone layer or laying worker.
Bad was I lost a hive to robbing, a single that my best guess is somehow the 70-80 mph winds we had week before last took the entrance reducer off of. It was laying in front of the hive and was on there when I fed them before the storm.

Show off... Actually I'm just jealous. :mrgreen: We're actually supposed to get above freezing and even into the 60's within a few days.

that i don't know if i'll remember what a drone looks like. :confused: Jack

They are big and noisy. If in doubt, put one in your mouth and you'll find out.

I bet Miksa has already started.

Yep, sure has.

Me and Baby Beek just looked in our hives this afternoon and didn't see any signs of drones yet.... not that we expected to either. The maple buds look about ready to open, so I'll be seeing drones in a few more weeks.
