Florin is still holding strong. They look like they’re growing a lot. Hopefully they will be able to find enough honey during the fall for them to get through winter. I don’t doubt they will, but it’s been really dry for a while now.

O mundo das abelhas é fascinante! Em tempos idos era comum as famílias terem colmeias, usufruindo de toda a sua riqueza apícola. Hoje , a maior parte das produção de mel é feita quase exclusivamente por produtores comerciais.

The world of bees is fascinating! In former times, it was common for families to have hives, enjoying all their beekeeping richness. Nowadays, most of honey production is made almost exclusively by commercial producers.

The yellows are just after the cast-outs of the natural hive it seems. They aren’t trying to get in; they’re just picking up the dead bees on the ground around the hive that are thrown out by the bees inside.

Devido à polinização, as colheitas aumentam em quantidade, os frutos e os legumes ficam mais viçosos, sumarentos e doces.

Due to pollination, the crops increase in quantity, the fruits and vegetables become more lushy, juicy and sweet.

The yellow jackets are back.

It looks like the combination of yellowjackets and hive beetles has caused the crawl space hive to abscond. There are also a crazy number of yellow jackets interested in the ground just in front of the natural hive. They don’t seem to be flying in to it, just landing on the ground in front of it. I cleared away all the leaves and plants around the area but found nothing of interest. There’s gotta be a huge nest nearby, and I need to find it.

The yellow jackets don’t seem to be very interested in my traps either. I’m killing several, but I’m getting more flies than yellow jackets.
