Inspecting My Hives
Today, Aaron and I went up to inspect the hives for winter and didn't like what we saw. Of the 20 frames in the brood chambers we saw pollen stored around, but very, very little honey! 3-4 frames per hive, and they were not solid frames. I slapped a feeder on both hives with 2.5 pounds of sugar per half gallon feeder. It looks like I'm back to feeding them. If I had checked sooner in the month I would have started feeding them then.
