Still Feeding and Hot

Tuesday morning I checked the nucs and gave Nuc #2 another jar of sugar syrup.

Nuc #1 still had a little left - I'll give them some more tomorrow or Thurs.

It is very, very hot today - heat index will be over 100! The bees are using a lot of water. This water bowl will be filled twice today - once in the morning and by late afternoon it'll all be gone.

They have other places to get water but this sure has been their favorite this summer. These photos were taken early this morning - before it really got hot - it was about 80 or so.
