October Beekeeping in Nebraska

The truest statement I can ever make is – Nothing is certain about Nebraska weather – yet I will say that October may be my favorite month because the temperatures most often fit in the comfort range. I wear  a light jacket.  October brings a freeze or two or more yet the sun shines and we warm-up during the day. The leaves brighten in their autumn colors, and then drift down to paint the sidewalks in splotches of burnt orange and yellow and garnet.

Beekeeping chores lighten-up in October. Our bees were medicated and then fed in September. I may top-off the feeding in October.  

Bees take advantage of daytime temperatures above 50 Degrees and fly out of their hives and circle around the premises.  Come November, and they are home bound due to a continual chill in the air.
