The Bees In July

The Bees.

     On hot and humid nights, you may see a huge curtain of bees cooling themselves on the exterior of the hive.

The Beekeeper.

     June and July are harvest months for area beekeepers. Continue inspections to the hive to make sure your hive is healthy.

     Heartsease and Smartweed bloom this month.
