Re: North Alabama Beekeeping questions
yep, the goldenrod has just started up here in the last week or so. if you are close to the river you may be seeing a lot of off-white pollen coming in too, i believe that's jasmine.
i put my entrance reducers on about when the first frost hits.
my bottom boards are solid, but some of the folks that use them this far south leave them open, maybe they will chime in.
i do like to put a half inch of pink foam between the inner and outer covers to prevent condensation on the 'ceiling' of the hive, again about when the first frost hits.
welcome to the forum hoss.
beekeeping since june 2010, +/- 20 hives, tf
