Why is yellow foundation always on sale and never black? I personally prefer the black and it seemed as though my bees did also? Anyone else experience this? I realized the other day upon inspection that 16 of my 18 hives have made it through the brutal and 50 straight days of sub zero MN winter and Im gonna need alot more of everything:D

I know the black might make it easier for me to see eggs and I ordered a bunch at Christmas when it was on sale, but I seriously doubt inside a black dark beehive, it matters to the bees. Congratulations on your wintering prowess! Count again when dandelions bloom. That is when I find it really counts.
