I have a big problem here in the northwest. When my hives winter over they become very wet and I have a big problem with mold.
I was think maybe this year I would add a Damprid bag in a box with a wire bottom on the top of the hive. That way the hive would stay drive throughout the winter. What I am not sure is if the Damprid Bag would be harmful to the bees. The crystal are enclosed in a plastic bag.
Any thoughts on trying this?
