    People here is my situation.

    One of my hives is very strong. I took the feeder off two days ago and there were LOTS of bees clinging to the inside of the feeder. Today they had taken all of the syrup, (2½ quarts spring concentration), and so I added another 2½ quarts. The bees were still crowded under the screen.

    Question: should I reverse the hives bodies or wait till warmer weather.

    Entrance reducer on small and they are bringing pollen. Day Temp estimated to be 55f, 44f, 43f and 38f.

    I’m in southern CT

    Not yet. Base your decision on the size of the cluster not on how much syrup they take. They should cover well into the second box before reversing.
