Episode-133- Prepare Honey Bee Hives For Winter

Tony Teolis/ November 7, 2012/ Honey Bees/ 0 comments

Watch how I prepare my two hives for winter with some extra food, varroa mite protection, condensation prevention, and moving the newer hive to a better location in the gazebo. Hurricane Sandy brought us temperatures in the 30’s now and the bees will soon be clustering if the weather keeps this cold much longer. I didn’t want to take any chances on ensuring their food supply but

at the same I try to be as non invasive as possible.

The video near the end is especially cool as I slow down the camera speed to show the bees in hive B have to slow down to navigate around the tree branch I placed in front to help them get accostumed to their new location
