Our Afternoons are starting to warm up a bit when there are no clouds.  This usually warms up the  boxes and stimulates the colonies to break cluster.  I do have some feed on them, along with some pollen patties as a supplement.  They are taking up the feed and are interested in the patties.  Once we get up in the 60's, temperature wise, I hope to make a full inspection and see how these new queens are doing.    On this day it was about 46 degrees out and they were coming out to do some 'cleansing flights'.   There are now little orange dots all over the back yard!
