Re: Bee recovery after bear attack (November 21)
Welcome to Beesource. Sorry to hear about the bear attack and that your first post had to be about such an awful event. See if one of your bee friends can loan you a 4 or 5 frame nuc to put the bees in. Even a super is too much room for a quart of bees. You will need to feed them sugar brick and pollen patty, as they probably will not be able to take from the baggie feeder except on the warmer days. A five pound brick and half a patty should get you through till March. Make sure the bees can easily get in and out of the shed for cleansing flight on those few warm days.

Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
