This year I decided to start with 1/2 of the packages at the end of March and the other half mid April. I've started mid-April packages before but never started a package at the end of March
I have enough drawn foundation to start each pkg on 5-6 frames of drawn and the rest undrawn foundation.
I plan to feed and provide pollen patties, but are there any other things I need to be aware of starting so early.
What are the pros and cons and management issues that I may have not thought about with this in eastern Massachusetts?
PS I won't have hurt feelings if you say this was a stupid idea!
