Unfortunately my schedule mandates this coming weekend as my winter hive check weekend. Temps are supposed to be in the 20's. My plan is as follows.
Take off top cover. Look, listen, and hope there are bees still alive. If so, remove inner cover, find empty frame or two quick as possible, replace with full frame or two. Replace covers. Done. Good idea? Bad idea? Will it hurt much to do more of a check? If the cluster is there on the top, should I replace inner frames or outer frames? It will be really difficult for me to do another check before mid or end of March.
What does everyone think??
