June 10 &11, 2016 Hive Inspection – Our (Naughty) Honey Bees

vH3 on the left and H1 on the right, our 2 parent hives.

I was in Canada visiting my first grandchild, Skye, so it has been 2 weeks since our  last inspection.

It is hot and sunny, 85F on Friday, 95F on Saturday, more of the same until Wednesday when it is supposed to rain, but remain hot. The apiary is a jungle but simply too hot to mow or whipper snip anything. Could use a nice rain given all this heat, so hope Wednesday’s forecast amounts to some nice moisture.

Tulip poplars are finished blooming. The white clover is still flowe…..
