This spring I built myself a straight sided TBH - I basically have it designed so the front 1/3 takes standard deep frames, and then the back half has the the top-bars that I have attached a small bit of pierco dipped in beeswax.
My question is - are there any particular recommendations for overwintering such a hive?
I am in CT, and we do get prolonged cold spells.
Do I simply leave in 15 frames of honey?
What are some suggestions on how to successfully overwinter this one. It's the first TBH I have ever worked with.
- I would like *everyone* to be nice to baby crabs.
