Thanks everyone! You are very friendly!
What temperature range and precipitation do you experience in Verona?
In this town the winter is mild with temperature between -5 and 10°C. Rarely it snows and the precipitation are about 70 mm/mounth when it rains a lot! Verona is in a lowland and for beekeeping there is the problem of the fog then a high level of humidity!
Is the third year that I'm beekeeper and the winter isn't soo good for me! The first two year I have lost two hive a year. But this year I hope that will go better. I had do a chemical treatment against varroa and my bees now are fine!
