Pollen patties

Tom and I put two pollen patties on our hive on Sunday when it was sunny and 50 degrees.  The bee girls were flying!  Even though spring is next week,  now was definitely the time to do it.  The hive was good and strong! We put two patties right inside the inner cover on top of the frames and closed it back up.  In addition to a pollen substitute  the patties also contain protein which they are starved for after the long winter.  We’ll be feeding syrup by April 15.
