Been away 2 days .Over winter bees have been very low key as expected..But when I returned today there is much activity around both of my hives.One hive has a group ( about 2 fist full) clustered the other has about 40 bees flying around outside entrance.Only thing I can think is the very nice ..warm weather is getting the bees out and about. But havnt seen this before during winter--what do others think??
