Based on your location/weather how do you run your hives???? single deep,double deep, triple deep,mutiple med.or what combo. and do you still have to feed in the spring/ and are you hobbie,sideliner or comercial. Jim
I'm in northern Arkansas which is pretty close to your weather I would say. I run double deeps, have them placed within a natural windbreak, screened bottom boards, and yes I have to feed come early spring. Took four into winter last year and 3 survived. Taking nine into winter this year and hopefully all will go well. I am a hobby beekeeper for now hoping to sideline some day.Good luck.
