We have had unseasonably warm weather, this of course after a "cold snap" followed by rain...Yesterday 65. today 62...bees are really flying...so many bees.  I am worried, should I inspect to check stores?

We do have plants blooming, bottle brush, manzanita and some other stuff...

What would you do??  I hate to tamper with them at this time, but...hhhhmmmm?Huh

With temps like that it should be safe to take a quick peek to assess stores and feed if deemed lacking.  Or you can let them forage on what's out there as bees will do anytime they can get out of the hive regardless of the time of year.  Question to answer is whether it well let you sleep better if you know the condition your bees are in, or if you find a problem will it cause more worry?
