    I was spending some time with my bees the last week (beautiful weather) and noticed eggs and larvae as well as some new comb. They are bringing in a lot of pollen and making some new honey. I had to make an emergency hive change, disrupting them quite a bit in the process. Is it too early to start spring feeding to get them to make new comb and brood? Thanks!

    Oh yeah, the entire state of VA is more than
    ready for feeding to have started weeks ago,
    during the last warm spell.

    I'm in western VA.
    I was feeding before Valentine's Day.

    I agree with stangardener. If you've already got enough of a nectar flow to see honey, they probably won't take the feed anyway.

    I'm still waiting for a day warm enough to peek at hives here in MN.
