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.

Covering Hives

I will be finally covering my hives over the next couple days. There may be some winter weather coming in on Thanksgiving day and I want to have the hives covered in case of a winter surprise.
 The weather over the next couple days will be around 40 degrees. All of my hives will be treated with an Oxalic Acid vaporizer. Every hive will be given two winter patties that are placed on the top bars of the top box.
 The next time I peek at my hives will be in late January or early February.
