Re: Control Winter Moisture
Find a way to ventilate the hives that have a moisture problem. The shavings mentioned above in a 'quilt box' are one possibility. An upper entrance is another possibility.
While Oak Harbor winters may seem cold* to you, in comparison to hives in many places elsewhere, you have mild winters. You can afford to lose some heat out the top in exchange for better ventilation.
*(I lived in Seattle for 13 years, I am familiar with the area weather.)
