There is no doubt that our bees are stressed at this time. They haven't been able to fly for a long time. They really need a 50 degree day to take a cleansing flight and be able to make it back home. If you haven't checked food stores on your hives - DO IT NOW! Some type of feeding may be in order - sugar board or honey. It is a bit cold for sugar syrup unless you put it among the frames. I usually wait until warmer times (mid-April) before sugar syrup.
Remember the April 8th Superior Bee Club Meeting. We will discuss hiving and feeding your package.
Thank you to David Vore for recording the 2013 Spring in the beeyard.
