This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

This is a pic of a strong overwintered colony. I would call this packed with bees. Italians, very strong, they will be able to divide in May
They need a pollen patty and their available food stores need to be checked so they won't starve if they have depleted their honey supply.
