I am a new beekeeper and this is my first winter as such. Well last summer I did a cutout and because it was late in the summer they didnt get a tun of stores, well I have been checking the aprox honey by lifting the hive well its been getting concerning so I made a emergancey candy board feeder got it ready last night put it in the oven and let it dry over night, today it was hard and was up to 40 today so I went and popped the top of the hive to find the cluster top of the frames. I slowly put the feeder on top and rocked it back and forth to get the bees to move through the frames so I didnt squash them. Well the ensuing hours all the snow around the hive turned yellow/green from cleansing flights. THey flew around most of the day till it started cooling back off. Im concerned because I went out at dusk and it was 36 and bees were still on the porch, will they be clustering back up tonight? Also the hole I drilled in the feeder (1") shall I leave that open or close it up. Im just concerned about any moister thats left in the candy board getting trapped in the hive. I also put dry sugar on top of the candy board to hopefully absorb any moister.........do you think my bees will be ok? :? :? :? :? :?
