Did my forth inspection a week or so ago, hive is 58 days old as of then.
Things have recovered fairly well from my last debacle.
Bees can be seen coming and going normally. I have been giving them a gallon per hive of 1:1 every 5 days or so. I've switched from a Double Jar Feeder to a 1 Gallon Frame Feeder that I got at Ballard bee when I was there buying protein patties. The bees love this thing. The rate at which they take the syrup has tripled. It's kinda a pain in the ass to have to open the hive each time I want to feed them, but it gives me a quick chance to look around. The bees also seem keen on the protein patties I have been giving them and I've seen no more evidence of cannibalism.
The bees seemed to be carrying a decent amount pollen now. Much of it is a grey color; maybe pollen from the forget-me-nots?
