Hey guys I have a TBH and a lang style hive. This will be my first winter and to insure they have plenty of honey to get through the winter I didn't take any honey this year. Both hives are full of honey so I'm thinking we should be good. What I'm not sure about is what I need to do to the hives? Do I insulate them? Close them up except for one opening? Or what? Also do you check your hives in the winter or leave them until spring? Also when do you do what? If you could give me a good run down on what to do and when that would be great.
