Went out to the back yard this morning to check on my bees and they let me know that they were not happy.
I can usually stand quite close to my hive and watch the bees without any issues. This morning I noticed more activity out of the front of the hive than I’ve seen lately, plus the bees were warning me to stay away before I got anywhere near the hive. (Even copped a sting on the ear)
We are in the 3rd day of winter and the days have been cool but sunny, with the nights dropping below freezing. The Bureau of Meteorology has put out warnings stating we are looking at heavy rain for the next 5 days.
Would the impending rain give my bees an attitude problem or should I be looking for another cause?
