Hive anamoly

nice hive mind artworkI was picking up some bee hive supplies today and heard a weird tale of some unusual honey bee activity from the owner Ken.

He's got a group of 7 hives that seem healthy but have not produced any honey this year. They have over 6 acres of clover to work with along with their neighboring hives which seem to be doing fine. The local inspector was giving him a visit just before I got there and the mystery had him stumped as well.

Maybe it's the quality of the clover, and maybe it's connected to the reason why hay fields around here only got one good cutting this year?
