1st yr hive don't seem to be storing much
I setup 2 hives and 2 nucs. Both nucs I think have been robbed by the hives.
I opened the hives yesterday and Hive A was barely off the 5 frames they started on and they didn't seem to have huge reserves either. I moved the 5 starter frames into the middle not disturbing their order. I figured when it gets cold they won't be up against the side they had been near.
Hive B has some honey on the 2nd level but only on a quarter of one frame.
Should I start feeding them sugar and/or pollen patties???
