    That would depend on what is blooming in your area. Watch the front landing board and watch the bees if they are going and comming like crazy and they are drawing comb chances are you have a flow on.

    we are in dearth currently. Small amounts of Golden Rod in bloom still a little bit of Sweet Clover in bloom and in some spots Alafa. Chicory is blooming but I don't think they get much from it except pollen. If you are in an area where there heavy flower gardens then there may be more but not much.
