Acacia bloom


The acacia time is here. This time must be a wonderful time for bees. But I think that the rains wash away a lot of nectar. In spring the were nocturnal chilled nights and in many parts of the country a lot of acacia chilled so the acacia flow will be not so good.
Last week I did put pollen trap at 2 of my hives just to collect pollen for me and my bees for winter time. I harvest acacia pollen as you can see.
Next weekend I’ll go to see the acacia honey the bees gather for me.

I did put a little move I did made for my beekeeper friend from America.

Acacia Time-Sad Time



I just want to say few words about acacia bloom and the weather situation but a new post from Bee-L coming in.
Aaron Morris post a sad new: Steve Tober just passed away. I learned a lot from his articles and his book. In my opinion he was a big personality in the beekeeping industry.
R.I.P.
