Following a talk to the DWBKA late in December Andy decided to make his bees more comfortable this winter.
This he has done with the aid of some readily available building materials and he has written an article describing what he did.
As someone who was at the original talk it certainly made a lot of sense and I can see why the wisdom of ages may not be the right wisdom. Cold and dry may not be the best environment for the bees.
Here is Andy’s account.
