One of the local members of my association has asked me to look after his bees as he’s not able to. So I will be managing his 3 colonies for this coming season, which are based in an out apiary site about 3 miles away. Went to look at the bees tonight to check on their state as nobody has inspected them since they were treated for varroa with Oxalic Acid in early January.
They appear to be thriving and have enough stores until the Spring flow starts. All are on 14 x 12 boxes and one will certainly need a super before too long. I gave the strongest colony a pollen substitute patty to encourage it along.
