New England - To Feed or Not To Feed?
I am in SW New Hampshire on the Vermont Line. My girls are bring in lots of pollen. It's been very warm; My questions is, it's only March and I suppose we could get another cold snap. So, is feeding bad?
Someone told me NOT to put my top feeders on until AT LEAST April to Mid April. They said with the food source and pollen, the queen will start to make brood and the first cold night or cold snap will kill the brood. Is this true?
I have 2 Deeps and 1 Medium on then now. I put an excluder between the my top Deep and the Medium which still has a lot of honey in it. Can I / Should I Put a top feeder on?
