Check for early forage plants

  • Watch hive entrance for bees bringing in pollen
  • Check your area for early forage plants: crocus, willow, viburnum, blackthorn
  • Check weight of hive for food stores – feed with candy if necessary
  • Watch for hives with no activity (has the colony died out?)
  • Tidy up the apiary
  • Check all stored equipment – repair/replace if necessary
