Took the insulation off and added an empty super to the hive today. Inside the top level is a feeder with a couple mason jars of a sugar/essential oil syrup. There are very few plants flowering right now and bees need a little treat until spring is in full swing. Once flowers are blooming they will ignore the syrup in favor of the real thing.
