We had mild winter here until this week Siberian high pressure reached Finland. Temperatures are about  - 20C - -25C  on the are where we use to keep bees out. It is -4F - -13F. Wind is exceptionally strong.

in Moscow  1000 km to south east from here weather is exceptionally cold. Worst temperatures are -30C  (-22F).

Problems or not? Which Moscow. I noticed 12 Moscow in USA!  . Only two had minus grades.

There is research here in Finland how bees can be managed in snow tunnel. Out temperature is just now -25C and in the tunnel it is -6C.
They measure temperature in and out hives and carbondiokside inside hive and in tunnel.

And welcome to visit to our forum. We manage well with winter and varroa.

If you think that's unseasonably warm down here we're at 80ºF!  That's the average for April!  On the plus side, the bees seem to like it.
