I left a full deep of honey, put in a pollen patty and some bee candy. Built a "box" of 1" insulation to put around each hive, making sure to leave space between the hive and the box. We have really cold winters here and things don't start to flower until late April/early March.
Welcome to our world..... Most of the Northern beekeepers get very anxious this time of year and will for the next month an a half hoping our bees have what it takes to make this last push thru winter into spring. Good luck to you and your bees!
