First off, here in Mississippi, we've been having much colder than normal weather. Temps have been below freezing at night. This morning, I made some 2 to 1 syrup to give to my girls, since the temps were supposed to level off, I went and put the feeder on one hive, no problems, the next hive, OMG, they hit me 4 or 5 times before I could get the feeder on. Never seen them do like that. They suddenly just swarmed out of the hive and went nuts! Oh well, maybe they will be happy with the feeding.
