There are dangers in spring feeding of colonies that don't need it--causing early swarming, and dangers in not feeding colonies that do need it--causing starvation. Heft your hive to gauge whether or not the bees have honey left. If it's light, feed it, if not, don't. You can feed sugar water during the day, away from the bee yard. Feeding in the apiary will cause robbing. Feeding in hive top feeders in freezing weather can cause condensation to rain on bees, killing them. It's a dangerous time for bees, until dandelions bring some nectar. ... See MoreSee Less

I've read that a great way to plant seeds is to sprinkle them on the snow in spring. As the snow melts, the seeds sink to the ground which is wet and heaves a bit with frost and sun, covering the seeds for germination and protection from birds.

About CSBA

The state association was organized in Denver in 1880 by J.L. Peabody, E. Milleson and Olive Wright. It was incorporated as the Colorado State Beekeepers’ Association in 1888 and is affiliated with the American Beekeeping Federation. The CSBA is the oldest and most widely recognized beekeeping organization in Colorado.

The CSBA functions as an umbrella organization for all other regional beekeeping organizations and clubs in the State. In addition, the CSBA is also the only organization in Colorado that represents the concerns and interests of the commercial beekeeping sector.

The CSBA functions as the main interface between State and local agencies and beekeepers.

All dues and monies collected by the CSBA go towards educational and associated social functions at meetings. The high level of cutting-edge information available at CSBA meetings often provides one of the only opportunities for local beekeepers to learn about events and concerns within the larger beekeeping community.
