Honeybee Roundup at Sleeping Bear Farms


It’s the middle of November, and we’re sending out our second truck of bees to Florida so we can make new beehives and new queen bees this winter. We start making new hives in February. We also send our bees to California to pollinate the almonds. It helps out the almond growers to get a good nut set. It helps our bees get a good surge of nectar and pollen much earlier than if they spent the winter in Michigan. The bees will come back in late February, early April. They will be in very good condition with robust populations and will be very healthy.
