I'm sure you will get alot of response on here it is a great resource, it helps to go through old post
Search out the guys who live in cold locations like Michigan, BlueBee and Wisconsin, T Beek (blue cold winters). I've read their posts, good stuff. Finland, Finski, good info. UK, Derekm, more good info. Sometimes they agree to disagree but when it comes to winter they all got a clue.
I don't need to know a whole lot about over wintering except to provide enough food to get them through the nectar dearth but, I find the posts to be good reading/information.
