The Maples are in Bloom

The maples are in bloom and have opened up yesterday and I am congestion and sneezing.  No sign of the basswoods blooming but still a bit early for them. The wild bees are very aggressive and Amy got stung Sunday.  The Carolinian and Russians are surprisingly docile compared to the wild “American” bees.  I removed the queen excluders off a few of the hives as the bees were not going up into the supers.  I will suit up this weekend and check things and perhaps add another super to the power hives.  The weather seems like it’s going to cooperate for at least this week.
