In the spirit of helping to cheer you up at the prospect of winter, I wanted to share this video with you. Michael Bush did a series of presentations at the Shenandoah Valley Beekeepers Association in Virginia, and they are available online.
They are excellent videos, and well worth the time. This particular one is about wintering nucs. Michael lives in Nebraska, and his climate isn’t all that different from ours. He winters nucs all the time, and here’s some information about how he does it.
There are other videos in this series, and they are excellent, and I will be sharing them in the near future.
