I put my bee package in on 4/13 and am super excited to have my first hive up and running!!! The bees are loving the spring here in the great Pacific Northwest.
As I am new to all of this…should I be keeping this debris from my bottom board…see attached pic? I see lots of pollen chunks, but I’m unsure of the other droppings. I want to have food/stores to give the hive over the winter. Any ideas? How should I collect it and keep it if at all?
