Kudos to all you Northern and frozen ones that over-winter bees year after year!!! :cheer: Here I am in South Florida, and pretty much stressing out over a couple nights in the low 40's. I always say that it is all relative...I am not used to 40* temps, nor are my girls! First time going into this kind of weather with my girls. (They were kind to me this spring and fall!). I HAD to do a split a couple weeks ago, so I am concerned for the NUC mostly. And I am concerned for my other 'weak' hive (working 9 of 10 frames thus far)...both of which have SBB. I added the mite board this afternoon as a bit of insulation. My strong hives all have solid bottoms, so not concerned about them too much. Anything else I should do?? I have absolutely no clue what breed I have, as all hives came from swarms. (Though according to my State inspector a couple weeks ago, they are "text book perfect"....which I just about jumped around in celebration to hear!) Since they are Florida swarms, I hope they have the stamina to tolerate cold temps! (which I guess they had to do as feral hives, too) Any advice? Feed, yes/no? A blanket on top of hives? Or just quit worrying and take it as it comes.... Seriously, I feel like the parent of a new baby. They're all doing so great, I hate to let a stupid oversight on my part mess things up! Thanks in advance for any and all input!!
