We also bought pollen patties. We will put them on the hives to give them pollen until it is warm enough and there is pollen to get. We also got two new feeder pails so we can feed the bees if they are out of their honey.
Dad checked on the bees again this morning and they are still alive. Tomorrow it is going to be 40 F out and the bees should come out some tomorrow.
Here is a picture of me at the U of M bee class.
