What Spring's Arrival Means to the Honey Bee

Springtime is the busiest time of the year for both the honey bee and the beekeeper.  While the bees are busy restocking food, it's also the season when new colonies are started and established colonies re-emerge. 


We invite you to learn from Mark Von Dollen, who raises VSH bees and Queens in Santa Barbara County, about the anatomy and development of the burgeoning spring colony.
