Waiting For Spring

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 20 November 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

I live near an agricultural preserve which has a lot of protected farmland. There is also a company that rents out their beehives to farmers. I went to the Maryland Honey Company yesterday to buy some honey. The bees are currently in hibernation. The bee keeper said that they feed the bees sugar water over the winter to keep them well fed and healthy.

I'm very glad to see these hives of healthy bees. Bees are having such a hard time due to disease, Monsanto, etc.

Wow!! It looks like quite a set-up for these beehives!! Thanks for the background information! We desperately need these hives for pollination.

I guess the fence is to keep people out, because I don't think it will keep the bees in. ;-) Interesting.
