So, it was a warm day yesterday and thought it would be a good idea to perform a hive inspection ....was surprised to find that I already have capped larva.
I've been feeding them sugar water and they have some pollen stores left, but probably not enough considering it will be at least 2-3 weeks before the crocuses and daffodils start producing pollen.
Guess that explains why the bees have been raiding my chicken feeder. I gave them some Bee-pro for what it's worth, but have not had much luck with that stuff. Will leave it up to them to decide.
Just putting the word out in case anyone wants to check on their hives.
