I just checked on the bees and they are fine but I suspect they will not make it through Feb in southern wisconsin. I was thinking about taking the hive into the basement and feeding. Is that a good idea? I just think It is worth saving the hive instead of paying 65 for a new package. It was a weak hive to begin with. I am amazed they lasted this long. I have put 5 pounds of sugar on the top feeder which they have not really touched. they began with a full deep of honey and possible a little more on the bottom deep. Thanks.
