This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

The bees have been bringing in nectar off of the Stiff Goldenrod. They have been working it and I noticed robbing behavoir of my bees is not there at the moment.
Other beekeepers have told me their hives smell like wet sweat socks so there is a flow happening. It may be the heat and humidity that kicked in the nectar flow. The weather will change next week and the Goldenrod nectar flow may stop with the cooler weather.
