4 out of 4 made it! Now, how does everyone feel about early merging?
Finally had both weather and availability to get into my hives today. All three 10 frame langs and my 5 frame nuc made it. I'm thrilled. One ten frame and the nuc are in great shape, 7 and 4 frames respectively. The other two hives have four seams of bees, going maybe halfway across the hive. The weather here is supposed to be just above freezing for the next two weeks. How early in the season do folks here merge weak colonies? I have the nagging feeling I should have done it today.
