We've had another rainy spell but Sunday afternoon the bees were flying. After Mr. Ellis and I opened the hives on the 20th, I took off all the entrance reducers but went back a couple of days later and put them back on. We had some cold nights and it probably made no difference to the bees but it made me feel better.
I'll probably leave them on for the time being. In the 60's today and looks like a good week weatherwise.
