Hey here is newbee question for you. My bees are foraging like crazy and bringing back loads of pollen. They still have honey stores...I sort of checked that, but it looks like they may have nosema as well. Should I treat now for that? Well, yes of course I should....if I treat now for that, should I treat later in the spring as well? Also, when does spring start in beekeeper world, cause it used to just be a May thing for us....I have a feeling it is sooner now. Alas, it appears that all of my inadvertant attempts at apicide have thus far failed, but I feel like I am totally flailing. Anybody interested in coming over and showing me just how screwed up my one hive operation is?

Laurie, sounds like Beesting has some great answers for you. I am out of town for a few days, but if you still need some help I may be able to stop by after I get back. Best to get treatment out of the way before the nectar flows. Pollen foraging is an excellant indicator. Great to see some use of the board.
