    sure wish my bees here took syrup in Feb and March, but they don't because it's to cold.
    maybe in April if the temps warm up.
    until then, sugar and pollen sub.
  2. Re: Just when i thought my bees had made it through the winter..... UGH

    My night time temps are in the low 20's. Day time low to mid 40's.
