Thanks Steel Tiger, a game of attrition for the weak hive. Well, I am doing all I know to do. I have Pollen Patties in and will add Amino-B to the syrup on saturday. Thanks for giving me an idea of what I should look for.
AllenF, I did add a piece of dried burdock stalk to the weak hive for a float. It was a field expedient fix. I'll know if it worked on saturday.
Today was a very warm day and I had bees in the yard while I was raking up. So they are starting to expand out from the hives. Also, had one follow me around for several minutes just buzzing in and out and around my head. As the spring progresses they will have wild blue berries, chock cherry, black caps, tea roses and a myriad of wild flowering plants to forage from. And that is just the half acer to their front.
Again thanks for the help.
