    Default SBB and 37 degrees

    It will be 37 tomorrow night here in Georgia. I only have the SBB

    Do I need to protect them? What temp is the coldest they can survive in a
    hive with SBB ??

    Mine do fine in the winter below 20 degrees so I don't think you have anythng to worry about at 37. I leave them open all winter.

    Same here. I never put the board in unless doing a mite count. 37 should be easy for the to cluster up a little and stay war.

    Can't answer for -30 but when I lived in Colorado I had open SSB and temps as low as -16 with no problems. Jim
