    Anyone out there have any info on overwintering TBHs in northern climates?
    How much honey would a TBH produce?

    Not sure about how much to overwinter, but I would assume it would the same regardless of the type of hive.

    My TBHs on average produce less than my other hives. I think there are several factors including the fact that the hive is horizontal, and the bees lose some of the benefits of the chimney effect, etc. How much would one produce? That answer is dictated by your area and flows.
