Winter Ventilation / Honey Bees
Dec 28, 2012

~
Enemy of a Bee Hive / Excessive Moisture.
I've tried various moisture control techniques
over the past winters most have been mostly successful
but I am always looking for new ideas and better
ways. This time around I have decided to leave
on my Mann Lake Feeders after feeding was
over with in the fall and set them up as
ventilation and moisture control top boxes.
I will post the results here in the Spring. Gary
