I suspect my queens are starting to lay, despite the dearth of fall (which really hasn't been that long, first freeze was so late). I hung pollen sub out in my little pear tree in its feeder a month ago, after first frost. The traffic going in and out of that feeder today was a solid buzz.... Grandson was ducking so as not to get a bee in his ear when we walked by it. The bees seem to know when the solstice is, and that is the start of hive buildup here. Putting fondant with sub in it on the hives at my house in the morning, did my outyard today. Then when it is really cold saturday I will probably do my 2nd oav treatment. That precise weekly thing did not happen, with the family stuff going on.
