It looks like a good portion of my bees have survived the Winter.
I did an inspection on Saturday. Most of the bees are still clustered in the top box.
Maybe four frames of honey left.
A bunch of bees are clinging to their Candy board. Another bunch are enjoying the Mountain camp method. Others are enjoying stored honey.
(I tried to give them as many options as possible )
Maybe two pounds of bees at best. Not quite a full package install.
I searched here and via Google and read through my Books concerning Spring Management.
What do the experts recommend that I do at this point?
Leave the hive alone and feed until higher temperatures and pollination is reached?
Manipulate the Supers?
I am guessing that my bottom brood boxes are empty now?
Not sure what to do at this point.
Clean? Manipulate the boxes? Swap out Foundations?
