Well took a walk over to the bee yard to check to see how they are doing. I'm happy to see them alive and taking orientation flights, but were in the month of December and its 63 degrees out side. I see that they are also looking for nectar on dead flowers. I hope those Italian cordovan's don't eat them selves out of house and home. Thinking of putting granulated sugar on them. Well good luck to all and their bees.
