Hive in Snow

Winter Hive Update

This winter we had lots of snow. There were two big snow storms with temperatures dropping below 20 degrees Fahrenheit. In the winter it’s not hard to keep your bees healthy. You have to make sure that you keep the hive entrances open from snow or other objects. Thankfully,the bees still survived the conditions.

Now that it’s spring the bees are out. We did an inspection and found lots  of brood so we know that the queen is healthy. When you do an inspection you want to make sure they have enough food. I had to add 2 frames of honey to the hive. We will keep trying to do the best for keeping are bees healthy and hopefully by summer we will be able to get some jars of honey.
