    Default Is there a rule of thumb on how much honey to leave?

    It's mid-June in Northern Virginia (come to think about it, it's probably mid-June in Biloxi also!) and I"m thinking most of the nectar flows are over. so, the girls will now start snacking on their stores. My job is to insure they have enough stores to last from now to winter, then thru winter, then until the first flow of spring. So, if I have 'X' bars of brood, how many bars of honey should they have on board? Or is this another impossible question???? - Mike

    Ask beekeepers in your area what it takes to get through the winter there. It is very much a local question.
