Re: Stop feeding pollen patties?
I have a couple of choices.
1. Don't feed, no bees in the spring, start over, or have a garage sale and offer all of the equipment I've invested in at about 5% of what I paid for it.
2. Feed. Bees in the spring.
The 3rd option would be to let my bees starve and buy all new bees in the spring. But since I'm in over $700 with no honey, I don't think so. I work 7 days a week in spring the bees could sit in mailbox and die before I get home from work.
Time to be a gypsy again, 2014 will be my prep year, my bees want a better area with actual rainfall.
