Hive Checks (4/14/2013)
Took a quick peak to see if were still alive and the good news is that they are still kicking and perhaps even starting to build up. Added a jar of syrup to see if that helps them along any.

They seem to be doing good and have a lot of drones on the way. They might be getting cramped for space so pulled one of three reserve bars of honey in the back so I could put a frame of brood comb up near the entrance. They were also storing fresh nectar so I think they are going to be good for food without that bar. I saw another sick bee with deformed wing on this inspection so hopefully they can build up quickly enough to outpace the issues.
Back to the bees,
