Ready for winter...minus wrapping.
« on: September 26, 2009, 04:07:37 PM »
Zero harvest for me this year.  Extra frames were distributed among light colonies.  Still an awesome year going 3 for 3 on swarm catches.  (First time)  One swarm went into a TBH.  (also a first)

Wrapping is a little while away but,  yes I will be wrapping hives.  Right now night time lows of 35-38 degrees and daytime highs in the 60's.
