Thank you so much for your advice! We have been keeping them in a dark cool (~50) place, and heating it up slightly when we spray the sugar syrup (1:1 by volume) on their cage. We tried to poor the syrup into the feeding can that came with them but because it was less viscous, it ran out rather quickly. So we are just spraying them for now. I am really anxious to get them in their hive, but we got another 2 inches of snow last night and the weather doesn't look like it will clear until Friday.
I read somewhere that feeding sugar syrup can cause dysentery, so I am worried that because they are 'trapped' this could happen. Perhaps I am being a paranoid begginer. I am also worried that spraying the cage isn't enough. When we do spray it seems like they spread out across the wire, but most are clustered in the center. How often should we spray? Do you think I should try to put baker's sugar through the screen onto the bottom of the box?
I am very tempted to put them in the hive today even with the weather being so cold. Although we received them Monday night, I think they were shipped on Sunday morning, so we are going on the 5th day with them packaged.
Again, I really appreciate all the knowledge on this forum!
