    Default In Dedham, MA, 1 hive, two beekeepers

    My wife and I started with our package of Georgia girls last spring, fretted all summer, harvested 34 lbs of beautiful honey, just ended treatment for mites with formic (just tons of the things on the bottom board) and now are all afret about winter and hope the girls make it through.
    Astonished to discover one can't pick up homasote at the lumber yard.
    Anyway, we made a lot of mistakes but our queen seems to be a corker, and we're wading through all the emphatically contradictory advice.
    Thinking of starting with a second hive this spring.
    It has been extraordinarily gratifying to see the bees healthy and productive. If we lose this colony, we'll both go into profound depression...
    Looking forward to learning lots from everyone.

    homasote is used for absorbing moisture on top of the hivein the winter
