How do you winterize your bees?
Winterizing bees is done different ways depending on the region where they are. Post the where you are in your profile.
Here in the north we use 2 deep (some use 3 mediums) inspect the bees mid Sept and start feeding 2:1 syrup if they are lite on stores, they will not take it if their bringing in stuff yet. Some will wrap their hives in October with roofing felt or other insulators.
We always ad a sugar cake on the top bars for our bees too.
then wait for the snow to come and insulate the hives.
