I've only been beekeeping for a couple of years and have a lot to learn. The first year was great.
But this long cold winter was not so good for my hives.

Thanks Adrian,
After this winter I'm thinking of switching to solid bottom boards or sliding something over my screened bottom boards for winter.

Welcome: Although some may argue differently, it has been my experience that it is best to close off the screened bottom board for winter in the northern latitudes.

Welcome Bill, I have open screens all winter, they work good if you have a wind block, Seems like the bees do eat a bit more honey with it open.
