Cold Blast in the South
We have an Artic blast coming through today and tomorrow....where normally our temps are in the 50's, they are in the 20's, with the low tonight being at 8F. Hopefully this won't be long term enough to hurt my bees. Two of my hives are strong, and have a goodly amount of honey, one hive is small. I have been feeding some, and in fact poured a little honey on the "front porch" of the small hive Sunday and watched them chow down, also had a boardman feeder with 2:1 syrup with about 1/8 cup of honey in it, for them.... I opened the hive Saturday and put a bucket feeder of syrup in, they looked good. Reckon they got a chance against 8F, and mid 20's tomorrow?
