Sounds like that hive has a good chance to survive.
Good job.

The rescue operation is going well so far with a lot of new bees from this $queen$ and reducing the brood space.

I really think the added insulation on the sides and covering with a couple of army blankets lets them stay warm during cool nights.

There is a small but consistent brood pattern, praise the Lord!  They might make it.

Thanks to all for the good advice on this site.

Your persistence is paying off. I am glad to hear the good news.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Thanks, Ben.

The warm fall is helping and I set out a community feeding station.

When we get into winter weather I'll need to do what Jim said about sugar candy, eh?

Yes that will be a good insurance policy for sure.
