Have been to check on my bees today - 1 week after putting in MAQs strips. Going back today, early evening, I thought I’d killed them all as no were flying as I walked up to them. Luckily I hadn’t killed them but they were extremely dopy and quiet.
All seemed okay other than that. I didn’t do an inspection as I didn’t feel it was needed and disturbing them any more wouldn’t be good for them.
I’ve put contact feeder in for them full of a heavy sugar mix. If the weather is suitable I’ll check then again next week.
