    At what temperature do I need to put my bottom board on my top bar hive? I am in Florida & it hasn't been too cold, but as some cold weather starts to come I'd like to be prepared. I have a screened bottom currently. Thanks ImageUploadedByBeekeeping Forum1483126066.676389.jpg

    you don't have to, but if the temp is going below 25 you could, just be sure you leave hive ventilation at least somewhere on top
