My two out of four colonies that survived our harsh winter are not taking sugar syrup (2:1). There is what appears to be good activity on warm days around the entrances with some pollen being brought in, but the syrup level does not go down. I can't believe this early that they are finding that much nectar here in West-Central Missouri. Is it possible there are just not enough surviving bees to forage and care for brood during our intermittently chilly spring weather? I've purposely tried not to open yet and inspect frame by frame due to the early season.
