March Hive Calendar

On the first 55°+ F afternoon, go through hives briefly: clean hive bottom boards and clean out dead hives.

Feed 1:1 sugar to water if:

  • colonies will not otherwise make it through to the Maple flow.
  • you want to build colonies up for early spring splits.
  • medicating with fumagillin (Fumidal B) for nosema control.

Pollen Sources: pussy willow, alder, maple, early fruit trees.
Nectar sources: crocus, heather, skunk cabbage, maple, apricot.
