    Super moon
    Kick me as I screwed up BIGTIME!
    I wanted to check and see if the "ladies" flew on a super moon like we had last night!
    I shut these old eyes and just woke up at 5 AM Sunday.
    So DO THEY go out on bright full moons?
    I went out at first dawn light and they sure were on their way to work. Maybe 8 to 10 a second. A few coming home already. I do have a sugar plate 10 feet away.
    It's only been 6 days since I recovered my first swarm and it looks like there are PLENTY of bees. I'll go in today and take a peek.
    Aloha

    Thanks and mahalo in advance as I need all the help I can get. Hopefully I can help you in return in other areas as I've been around the block a "few times".

    Not an expert but I doubt that a bright full moon would bring them out.

    I was reading about those Moonbeam queens you can buy at Russell Apiaries, they produce bees that work in the dark, kind of.

    It was so cloudy here my bees stayed in bed. They were tucked in by sundown.
