After seeing BWranglers site a few months back I just had a question.
Though I don't need it here is it possible in the northern states or Canada if you have a plexiglass or single pane glass cut as the inner cover or as both inner cover and telescoping lid would this help heat the hive up enough to allow the bees to move around as needed for food?
This is not meant for use during the entire winter but used only as needed. Maybe covered with a slide in piece of plywood over the top. One problem that may be brought up is moisture, but on BWranglers' site he mentioned that the vapor was acutually a boon for the bees as a water source during the winter. Or glass is too brittle in the winter. Maybe sun angle is too low for an upper. If so maybe a side panel like Jon McFadden has on his TBH?
Any thoughts? Thanks!!!
