Both hives were weak going into Winter after some late season swarming. I left all the honey in the hive and added a packed candy board to each hive. I peaked in through the top of the candy board today and I see bees moving in each hive. They were packed together pretty tight and the ones that I saw near the top were moving around the candy board. However they were moving very slowly. At least half speed or less than normal. Temps were in the mid to upper 40s today with sun and a decent wind blowing. My question is this: Is the slow motion moving to be expected? I saw a video the other day someone posted of their hives at 42 degrees and they had bees flying out and around the hive entrance. No activity outside mine today. Are living bees all I need to see when temps are in this range? I have done so many things to help them make it through Winter that I would hate to lose them so close to the weather changing. I see sugar scraps on the bottom board so I know they are eating the candy board. Should I be concerned? I guess at this point there isn't much I can do. Spring should be here in a few weeks time. What do you think?
