Waterby Ruhl Bee on 06/30/13
Remember to keep a good source of water near your hives. The less time and energy the bees expend on gathering water, the more time they can spend on gathering nectar. Make sure the water source has a landing are for the bees. They often drown if they land directly on water. A good option is the bird bath. The bowl shape allows the bees to walk down to the water.
