On a cold January day what else to do but check on the bees. It was -5F this morning with a feels like temperature at -22F. So I thought I would listen to the bees and take a couple of pictures. I have been wintering smaller 10 frame singles and 5 frame singles with insulated slip over covers for a couple of years now with great success. This audio is from a 5 frame single deep colony with a slip over insulated cover. The bees are looking great! We are building lots of new equipment, as once spring arrives we will bee very busy taking care of the bees, raising queens, and making nucs. Hope everybody’s bees are doing good!
