This chapter covers the topic of honey flow and discusses food sources that are needed for the bees during their foraging season. Beekeepers often ask, “How do I know when the honey flow is on?” and more often ask, “How do I know when it stops?” Another topic that your local bee association and experienced beekeepers in your area will be able to advise you is knowing what flowers bloom in your area, when, and how much nectar they provide. Today we will address both of these concerns.
