My one time a year I treat myself to those yellow Peeps -:grin: I have been following you guys all winter and sounds like most did well over the winter with their bees. I still have my 6 hives, and took a peek today and it looks like they are starting to build up pretty good. I have 4 queens coming next month to do some splits. Here in northern Arkansas - spring has been LATE - and it's suppose to be cool again next week so my bees are slow about building up - it was a month early last year - and now a month late this year. When I get ready to do my splits, think I can wait and do any reversing at that time as well? I checked on our bee tree and sad to say, it looks like the bees didn't make it or are gone. We had such a dry, hot summer last year and that may have did them in. We have had that bee tree for many years. :sad: I sure hope we don't have another dry year like that one.
