Hey all, well read newby here.
I have seen those styrofoam hives advertised in some of the distributors like Betterbee. The advertising claims that the increased warmth is a boon to hives in northern climates.
I will be starting 2 colonies this spring and was wondering if I should incorporate some kind of insulation into my TBHs. It will make it more labor intensive and costly. Do you think its worth a shot? Maybe I should do it to one of my hives and see how the two perform side by side starting from packages.
Ponder the path of thy feet.
