|Pallets of bees in an Almond Grove|
almond bloom 2016
The Almond bloom is critical for Minnesota beekeepers. We have Minnesota beekeepers in California pollinating the Almonds. Also, our bees come from this area. The pollen and nectar coming in from the Almond blooms stimulate bee colonies. Queens will increase egg production during this time. Large quantities of drones will also be produced. This increased hive production will be the package bees and queens coming to Minnesota/Wisconsin in April.
Where ever there is money to be made there are scoundrels pouncing on the hard working beekeepers. Thieves can make off with your bees.
