That is the question! We are first year beekeepers, currently with 3 hives, 1 package of Italians and 2 swarms, and everyone seems to be doing well (well, atleast from first time beekeepers eyes!). But, we are trying to figure out how to get through our first year with our bees, successfully and as naturally as possible. So, our question(s) is/are, do we need to feed through the winter and what are the benefits and downfalls? And what can or should we feeding? We are located in South Central PA. Thank you!
