  4. Re: Overwintering with honey super on top - Good, Bad or Ugly?

    I'm sure my winters are not as cold or as long as yours, but I run double deeps and a med super all year round. They do end up laying in that super, but it gives them more food in the spring. I...

    I've received my shipped queens, and the shipper used a USPS cardboard ENVELOPE. Maybe that's it, you should have used one of their cardboard envelopes and not a box.
