Country Hive & Pollen
Today was a very beautiful day – perfect weather, sunny and a cool 75 degrees or so. Low humidity. Mark installed some Beetle Blaster traps to see if the beetles will go in and die. There was one moving around so I got to see what they look like. He will check in a week or so to see if any beetles entered the Blaster.
The red dog visited again – what a sweet dog he is. And we were surrounded by lots of butterflies fluttering about and unfortunately, so were the mosquitos. I’m ready for those to be gone already.
This is one of my favorite videos of the bees. This is the healthiest hive out there in the country and as I watched them, I noticed they were carrying quite a nice amount of pollen in so I decided to record some so Mark could check them out with me. I love to watch the bees land and walk in their load. There’s just something cool about the way they are so matter of fact about walking over one another to get the pollen in the hive.
