    Over 95% of all beehives in Finland (latitude of Alaska) is wintered in one Langstroth.

  9. Re: is this chilled brood or something worse?

    In the first picture there is some food in the corner.

    Re: Wintering Bees In Alaska

    Looking at those pictures it is obvious that there has not been enough ventilation. Water is not getting away, and is condensing in wrong places.



    Not many reports how have bees been wintering...
  16. Re: Another mite resistant bee breeding project

    Got me on that one.

    I haven't contacted John since we went there but the situation then was as you described.
  17. Sticky: Re: Hive designs and their advantages and disadvantages
