I'm in Michigan and have rotated hive bodies once without breaking up the brood nest and yesterday I added suppers to 9 bhives S. of Lansing Michigan of which 2 were new packages started 1 month ago on 4.9 foundation. Almost everything is blooming here except the apples which should pop this comming week. In one day the suppers were 1/4 full but the bees moved up the honey in the brood boxes to the suppers. The weather here has been in the 40's at night and in the low 60's during the afternoon. The bees are also bring in much pollen.
