Return to Winter

Day 12 following package installation.  Snow is flying and the bees are hunkered down.  We checked their sugar water supply yesterday before the storm.  The forecast suggests that temperatures are unlikely to exceed 50 degrees F in the day and will dip to 30 degrees F or so the next few nights.  The bees can cope.  They might suffer some losses from chilled brood but they should be able to cluster in the hive and keep the queen and brood safe for a few days of cold weather.  We will check on them early next week.   For the time being there is nothing to be done.
