It’s time for an update on how our 2021 spring 5 frame nucleus colonies are coming along. They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words. This was yesterday here in northern CO. So far there have been minimal days for foraging this month. Snow, cold, wind and rain. Did I mention snow, cold, rain, wind? Not much incentive for the colonies to build up yet coming out of winter.
Fortunately we’ve been through this scenario many times over the years… in fact we can still receive a good blanket of snow for Mothers Day. Never the less, we still anticipate 5 frame nucleus colonies being delivered towards the end of May, first of June at this time. Again, we’re dependent on mother natures schedule vs. our own. Hopefully we’ll see a warming trend as May approaches and can give you all a more accurate delivery window.
