Care for Bees in Early Spring

Yay! So your bees made it through the winter, that's awesome! But don't think your hive is out of the danger zone now that the weather has warmed. Early spring is a time when bees especially need a helping hand. Chances are, their winter stores of honey are getting low, and even though it's warm, the flowers haven't really bloomed. So we help our bees with a simple syrup feed. Check out our latest video to learn how! 

Mix equal parts table sugar and water, heat on stove top until sugar dissolves. Let cool. Pour into mason jar, top with the metal lid and insert into bee feeder. Supplies found below.
