The internet has been abuzz with questions about fall feeding; “when should I do it?” “How much?” “What method should I use?” . The questions they should be asking is “Should I even be doing it at all? Is it necessary?”
At this time of year there are a lot of questions about what the beekeeper should be doing. We have been busy teaching the annual Bee School with our beekeeping club. As part of our efforts to prepare these new beekeepers we have prepared this month by month summary of what is happening in our area, what the bees are doing at that time, and what the beekeeper needs to be doing.
