    It’s a vacation house. No one will be there. I would most likely overwinter in a single deep the way I did at home.

    Judging by the remoteness of the area I doubt I’d be infringing on other beeks.

    I also may disagree with regard to the spreading of mites since I wouldn’t be treating till mid summer anyway. Moot...
