not sure what to do if my bees arrive and it is still as cold as it is right now. I am starting two new top bar hives but the temperature here in Southeast Wisconsin has been very cold the last few days and projected for the next week or so to be in the only low to mid twenties during the day.

can a new package surviving temperatures like that? Will they even take any of the syrup from the feeder?

and to use an entrance feeder placed behind the follower board inside the hive
