Re: reverseing hives ?
Yes I read his paper. It seemed logical but my bees have not paid attention. All my survivors have been right on the top cover so there is no honey above. There has been honey to the side and below. Some how the bees know that we have temperature swings in the spring so they stick close to the top and go over or down to get honey on warm days. The bitter cold stretch is usually in February for us. I say usually because it has been anything but consistent. My guess is we will have more snow but the temps are on the mild side.
