It's actually been a pretty mild winter this year, even in Flint, Michigan. Because of this shift in the norm, insects (even honey bees) have been active much sooner than usual.
WLWT in Cincinatti reported that is certainly the case in their neck of the woods. Click here to check out their video recorded at the World of The Insect located in the Cincinnati Zoo.
What's it been like where you keep your bees?
