Here in Northern Illinois, winter weather has finally arrived.  Yesterday ~3″ of snow fell upon my farm and my hives.

My bees were all tucked warmly in their homes, which were winterized a month ago.

If you haven’t winterized your hives, there’s no time like the present.  Here’s a list of things to consider.  Decide for yourself, which ones work best for you!


May all your wandering take you to many wonderful places.
