The honey flow is pretty much over for most of us in the northern states in the US and fall is just around the corner. What actions should we take during these fall months in preparation for winter?

A) Feeding?

B) Basic Hive Maintenance?

C) Queen Replacement?

D) Hive reorganizing (Movement of frames, downsizing of brood boxes, etc.) ?

E) Medicines/Treatments (Organic or other wise)?

Regards,
