The small colonies; Myrina, Mab, & Gumption, are OK in the stores department too. Though i added a full honey frame to Gumption. Her few bees get all the help i can spare. Barring any prolonged deeply cold weather the bee populations in the Apiary are going to explode in another month.
The weather wasn't the only thing that was calm. Varroa populations are down since the Mite-Away treatment last Fall. There has been no signs of Nosema either. There are a few SHB hanging around still in Mary & Myrina but much less now. It has been a good Winter. Hopefully that will lead to a productive Spring (population increase & splits) then to a honey filled Summer. I will keep you posted.
