There is a difference between my over wintered hive and new hive when it comes to noshing on pollen patties. When I checked on the bees in the new hive yesterday, I found that they had almost completely finished the second pollen patty. This new hive is a lot more interested in the pollen patties that the over wintered hive. The hive that was over wintered was not interested in the pollen patty at all. I guess they must have saved their own stores of pollen that are better than the pollen patty.
