It's been on about a week and they aren't too interested
They've nibbled it some but not much, the Maples are blooming here but the weather has been too lousy for much foraging.
Gonna be 60 on Sunday, I'll open em up and look for brood
Pollen Patties must be placed on the top bars very close to (~2 inches?) the brood early in the season. Later on, when colonies are strong and the weather is warm, apparently bees will travel farther to eat them.
