Warm enough day for a quick peak and holy moly! I was confident they had the numbers to overwinter but I did not assume I would see 2 brood boxes FULL of bees in this hive! Did an OA drip since I was planning to anyway, but far from broodless as you can see from the photo.
Winter here just off the northern CA coast is always mild, but we still have a few months of on-again, off-again frost left yet.
I'm moving into my 2nd season –> a few questions:
I know a lot of this stuff is very local, but after just 1 season I realized the beekeepers here who I know are much more hands-off than I am comfortable with. If there is any general advice, it'd be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
