Spring Cleaning

SpringCleanFly1The bees made it through the tough Winter. Seems like the cold was never going to snap. Today was Spring cleaning and time to shake and awake the girls. There were so many dead bees at the bottom of the hive. Once I cleaned out the hive, brushed off the frames and rearranged the supers, it seems like they came alive and said thank you. Immediately they were busy and started bringing in pollen from somewhere.
