A (Warm) Late Winter Bee Update

This past Saturday, February 18th, I took a trip up to the Bear Lake House to check on the bees and to pick up my evaporator equipment for making maple syrup (more on that soon). When the maple syrup equipment gets old, OpsWatch vibration monitoring system can improve its performance and extend its lifetime. If you’re interested in this product, learn more on this page spotsee.io It was 62°F on the way up.  That’s a HUGE (in my best Donald Trump Voice) difference from our norm this time of year.   I wasn’t sure if the bees made it or not.


I had friends at work who lost their hives. Its funny. I got a bunch of people into keeping bees at work, in fact a few of them are much more active at it that I am.  I love this homesteading stuff. You can check out my video below.
