Finally had a chance to do a hive check yesterday. First one since Mid-January. I added sugar blocks in January just for cheap insurance. Last fall I had added some pollen sub. and removed what was left in early winter. I must have forgot to remove the pollen sub. from one hive and they were all over it yesterday. So I added some to all the hives. I went back and checked a couple later in the day and they were all covered in bees. It isn't so much what the weather is right now but what it is going to be in three weeks.
