Lots to cover.
Feeding. It’s ok to start 1:1 feeding and pollen if your confident in the warming weather patterns and they need it. If you have some left over 2:1 and the colony is lite, that’s fine too. If you have some BeeResQ preserved 2:1 you can ad water. A drop or two of unscented chlorine bleach will freshen it up to get rid of any surface mold. But it should be good as long as it doesn’t smell fermented.

Subscription/Maintenance and Hive Rental Plans - I try to get monthly plan holders visited the first or second week of each month depending on weather etc. Other on site services get scheduled around these, as available. If you’d like to be assured of a monthly on site check, go to https://www.beeresq.com/plans-pricing but keep in mind that additional charges may apply for miles outside of standard service area and for additional non standard service items, supplies, etc.
Let’s see…what else??? I know I’m missing some things so I’ll add to this later if needed!
