From our local forum:
Earlier this month the Milwaukee/Waukesha bee club had Etienne Tardif present on his beekeeping methods in the Yukon. He has an engineering background and has spent a considerable amount of time using senors to collect data on how bees overwinter. He keeps about 10 colonies and has an overwinter success rate of about 90%, even when doing 5 frame nucs. He is a big fan of keeping bees in insulated boxes. Below, you will find links to his website and YouTube. Keep in mind, his winters are extreme compared to ours so his methods are over the top for WI. Nonetheless, his data is superb.

I enjoy his articles. I like to try to understand what the bees need to survive, based on the physical laws of nature. His work goes a long ways to explain the physics of beekeeping in extremely cold conditions.

Thanks for sharing... I noticed a spike of traffic way above the 5 or 6 people/day to my website that I really need to update with my new material.
