Very little activity in the hive, the queen is surrounded by thousands of workers. Some worker brood will be raised but there is a total absence of drones.

Little to be done by the beekeeper other than keeping an eye open for damage to the hive and possibly shield the hive entrance when snow is on the ground.  Reflected sunlight may cause the bees to fly but they will perish in the cold.
