My hive ( 2 ten frame boxes) is wrapped and ready for snow which is forecast for tomorrow in CNY. I checked on them this am and they are already into the candy board. I looked like all of the frames were nearly full of brood and honey so I didnt expect them to start eating so soon. Not a bid deal as I can just drop more in, I was just a little surprised at how much they ate already. There is still a lot of activity around the hive and all seems fine.
