Time to check on the girls and see how their sugar water supply is holding out.  Some of the hives are starting to take less now that the weather has gotten a bit warmer.  All the hives are bringing in pollen, even the two new swarms.  The shot above is from one of the swarm boxes.  We ran out of the unused quart paint cans and in-hive feeders that we use to feed the other hives, so I had to improvise with a mason jar.  It seems to work well and I like that I can see the level of the sugar water without having to swirl the cans.

They like to cling to the cans/jar when we take them out to fill them.  Couldn't resist snapping a shot of this little tag-a-long!
