Winterizing Beehives - Bee Vlog - Oct 4, 2014

In my area moisture is the big winter killer. So to prepare the hives and help reduce condensation I'm adding quilt boxes (aka quilts, moisture box, moisture quilt) and tipping the hives. The quilts will help to absorb water and keep the ceiling warm. Tipping the hives will allow any condensation to run down the inner walls instead of dripping on to the bees.
