The last couple of years I've over wintered my bees in Nevada before bringing them into the almonds. This year I brought them straight here and boy is it humid and cold (lots of fog every day near Bakersfield). Anyway, I want to bring big hives back home out of the almonds for heavy splitting. Is putting patties on now going to help or will it just get wet and moldy before the bees can eat it? In Nevada it works but it's a lot dryer. Thank you.
