Working to Save My Hives from the Cold

With the impending cold weather coming last week and knowing that these bees were still struggling to rebuild and survive…Chris Murphy, fellow beekeeper, came up with this idea to insulate the hives and make life a bit easier for them!  Brilliant idea and believe it helped.  Had to be careful that we allowed the hives to be ventilated as condensation (dampness) is a bigger enemy than the cold.
