Weather Looks Great for Honeybees/Pollen/Entrance Reducing

Our bees have more pollen right now than they can possibly gather! I am not feeding pollen patties to my bees at this time. What's most important is giving them sugar water until the nectar arrives. They have to have flowers to forage for nectar. The first sign of this is dandelions. As soon as I see dandelions, I pull my feeders replacing them with frames. Another way we can help our bees at this time is by pulling the entrance reducers during the day and replacing them on the smallest entrance before it gets under 40* in the evening.
