Nectar Flowby Ruhl Bee on 06/24/13
Willamette Valley nectar flow is still strong. We could do with a bit more sun to get the bees moving, but this moisture helps the nectar production. It is best to stay out of your hives during the main flow, so the bees can get on with their business uninterrupted. If an inspection is unavoidable, don't linger, and try to minimize the disruption. East of the Cascades, honey production is looking encouraging.
