this is THE MONTH

it's TIME to get them ready for winter.

get any VARROA treatments in there/done (remember, chemical strips/trays/pads - whatever you decide have to be removed before the final wrap) - so give yourself enough time - count backwards! if you're "powdered sugar dusting"'ll want to "hit them" a couple times...

get the WINTER RECIPE - SUGAR SYRUP on them.

and it's MOUSE time! they're looking for a nice warm place to hole-up for winter....get some "guards" on the entrances.

take a look around for any extra "shelter" materials or barriers you might offer your hives over winter....STRAW BALES?
