New member and 'beehaver' here.  Just installed my first two packages last Saturday and it's been cold ever since.  Hopefully things warm up soon and I can start transitioning to the title 'beekeeper'!

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll warm up before we do. It's good to have you here.

I'm about 20 miles west of Sioux Falls near Humboldt.  Installed my bees last Saturday at 34 degrees and I don't think we've seen the 40 degree mark since.    Sad

Are you getting feed into those bees?  I followed others who put warm syrup in a gallon zip lock bag and lay it directly on top of the frames where the bes are clustered and poking a couple 1 inch holes in the top of the upper side.  I tried the feeder jars and they seem to cool off and not get used.  We had a foot of wet snow to wake up to this morning and it snowed til noon!  Supposed to hit fifty tomorrow.  I pray for some global warming to hit here!
