Probably about now would be a good time for pollen patties.  But then you are further north than me.  You really don't have to feed any at all.  They won't be that active until the maples bloom anyway and then they won't need them.

I will be feeding pollen patties today, the skies this morning are clear, the sun will shine, and the weather station says that we will hit 10C (50F), so it should be a good day for the bees.  Most beekeepers in our area are beginning the pollen patty feed.  Have a wonderful and awesome day, love life.  Cindi
