I was a little worried. One of the hives I manage had a bad die off from some pesticides a neighbor applied early in the year, and they have had a hard time coming back. I’ve spoken with the perpetrator, and they have seen the light (vinegar kills plants too!). The hive in Duvall has been a struggle. I may not run it again there next year (more on that later). The hive at the farm though is doing well. In fact, given that I pulled a split out of them in April, they are doing really well. There is still some bloom to go, and they have a super and change full, as well as both the brood chambers jammed with honey and a good supply of pollen. But don’t take my word for it, check it out!
