Has anyone in the cold white northern states put on any pollen sub yet, and if not when do you plan to do it?

I don't plan on doing any for a while yet, and I'm down south. Not until the nights are staying in the mid to upper 50's.

But my one hive at the moment is a glorified 5 frame nuc, I don't want them trying to raise more brood than they can easily cover should we get a sudden cold snap.

I put on small amounts around the inner cover hole (2 half dollar size slabs) 2 weeks ago on all my hives when he had a few days of warm weather. The strong hives devoured it, the 2 weeker hives with clusters not reaching onto the inner cover barely touched it. I plan to put a little more on in a week when warm weather is predicted. Just small amounts
