February finds our bees packed up neatly and moving south for warmer climates. This allows them to get back to the job of producing honey much earlier in the year than if they stayed in PA all winter. When they get there, our beekeeper will open the hives for the first time since fall, if it is warm enough. Then he can organically treat for a pest called Varroa mites which attack honey bee colonies and he will gauge the overall health of the hive.
