Re: Shb and the cold
Cold weather takes a toll on both shb and bees. In my experience, winter is more devastating on the beetles. Going into fall many of my hives have a load of beetles. During my first inspections in the spring, it's rare to find more than a few in any hives. It's not uncommon to find a clump of dead beetles who apparently got separated from the winter bee cluster and perished. For reducing shb, cold weather is your friend.
