Well, yesterday it got to about 55 degrees, and I saw evidence of bees at both hives. Lots of brown splotches at the one - hope it's not too bad. Not as much activity at the other. I wanted to open and maybe put dry sugar on today, but now they are calling for rain turning to snow and back down to 30F. If I do get a chance, is it better to put the sugar on top of the inner cover, or open that, add an empty shallow, and put on newspapers underneath? On another note, will the sugar make things worse if the one hive has dysentery?
