First look at over wintered hives. This was around February 13th during an unusual warming of weather. It was around 70 degrees when the hives were opened. The bees are strong and no medications have ever been used. I am a big believer in ventilation and air flow to aid in the bee’s health. A simple look at what breeds disease in our human world is the same for honey bees. stagnant moist damp air breeds disease. This is my belief and I have built my hives with ventilation in mind. The bees are Russian honey bees and come from Ray Revis who is the master beekeeper of RevisRussians.com. The hives are cedar and the top super can act as room for airflow as well as to house mason jars for syrup feed in a dearth.
