This past winter was the mildest in recorded history. While this was a plus for many – no plowing, no shoveling!  – it wasn’t good for our honeybee colonies. Instead of staying snug in their hives, expending little energy and consuming little food, the confused honeybees buzzed out into the warm weather, searching for pollen and nectar.
