Hi Reddog,

Mine are in the same mode. Spring will start here soon.  You can do a couple of things to help them along.

Put on a pollen patty of some sort and you if you medicate, you might want to do that now so that the medicine will be done by the time it's supering time.

JUst wait. You cannot do any usefull.

My hives have cleansing flight during 2 weeks. After that I check food, I change bottom boards and I put terrarium heaters on bottoms.

In first week of April I start pollen patty feeding. Snow cover goes away about 10.4. and willow starts blooming 1.5.
