Hello, I have been thinking a lot about how I will try to overwinter my bees in my TBH. I have a couple of different ideas...but I haven't made up my mind just yet. I ordered a hive cover from a website...I think it was Backyardhive.com. Basically, the cover gets wrapped around the hive, with insulation between it and the hive. From what I could see, you wrap it in such a way that it still allows ventilation, and room for the bees to get out. Then, straw bales can be put under it and around it for added protection/warmth. I have also read about some people just using straw all around the hive. It almost seems like a good idea...but then I started thinking that the straw would probably get full of mice, as they too will be looking for a warm place over the cold winter. I have read about some people just moving the hive indoors, like into the garage or something. So that made me wonder if I could build a structure that keeps the snow of the hive, keeps them warm, but still gives them ventilation. Anyways, I have not decided what I am going to do, although I will have to make my mind up soon. I'm really hoping I can overwinter them. I'm going to be leaving them with a lot of honey...so I think I have a chance. I was curious to know if anyone had luck overwintering their TBH, and if so, how did you do it? Thanks!
