Have you received the reports back from the state inspecter? Still interested in what he has to say. My bees are all but shut down here. The high next week is forcast around 43. I'm about 500 ft off the valley floor, so I'll be significantly cooler. Last time I was in them, the brood was a bit spotty, same as you reported. I didn't think much of it. It's been cold around these parts.
