February Hive Calendar

Feed any hives that seem light, use the dry-sugar method mentioned in last-month’s hive calendar if the weather is cold. If it warms up to mid-50s you can feed 1:1 sugar water with a hive-top or frame-feeder. It’s still too cold to feed sugar water with an entrance feeder.

If we get a warm day (55-degrees or warmer) you can go through the hives, but be quick about it. Clean bottom boards, clean out dead-outs, and tidy things up a bit.

Nectar: No significant nectar flows this month.
Pollen: Alder, Cedar, Juniper, Crocus, Heather, Pussy Willow, Maple, Apricot
