The bees are ready for winter – I hope!

The beehives are all set for winter. Hopefully they’ll all make it thru the winter.

Mordant board and a spacer is placed on top of the hive to absorb the moisture created by the bees maintaining 92 deg. and the hot air moving up to the cold cover. The tar paper on the brood box to absorb the sunlight, giving the hive a boost in temperature so the bees do not have to work as hard keeping the temperature up. This allows the stored honey to last longer so the bees can keep warm longer – they eat the honey to generate heat.
