Welcome to Medina Beekeepers!  Today, a few minutes ago, is officially the first day of SpringNow if we can just hang in there until the weather starts to cooperate.  Watch your hives for foodIf your girls are living in the upper box or are massed at the top, a little fondant or moist sugar is cheap insurance to carry them until the temps warm a bitIf your bees are hauling pollen they should be OK for protein.  I see light yellow and some bright orange pollen coming inFor second year beekeepers, it is best not to feed your hives sugar syrup this time of year.  That was necessary the first year until they drew comb and raised enough workers to take care of the hive.
