beekeeper Fred just commented: I was putting on a few Bee Cozy's. In several hives the cluster was at the top of the hive. Seems like the bees never got the message to migrate to the bottom brood chamber and work upwards through the winter. Hope this doesn't portend heavy winter losses again.
....yup...ME TOO. bees were in the top box when i last looked. i'm HOPING that that's not REALLY where the CLUSTER IS. i'm hoping those were just "feeder" bees up there looking for a sugar bucket.
