A lot more than an Upstate NY winter. The difference is my bees don't collect any in the winter and yours do.
There is no good way I know of to get them out without a cutting torch which will obviously not work... So I was pondering when and how to lure a swarm out of the existing colony to add to my growing apiary. Would be nice to be able to do this a few times over the next couple years.
