Re: very small cluster
I have three hives in my basement like that. They aren't quite that weak I don't think but I don't think they can handle these cold nights.
Two of my hives alread froze todeath that were weak like that.
I have my entrances screened and took them outside on the last warm days we have had to let them out. Then when activity stops. Screen the entrances and bring them back in. Be sure to put them back in the same spots where they were in the yard when you turn them loose. They are oriented to those spots.
I have no idea how this is gonna work but we will see. Make sure they have feed too. pour a small amount of syrup in the entrance or somethin.
Don't laugh it's paid for. -- Manure draws more flies than honey.
