d's method of hive wrapping

your hive is ALIVE during the winter months.  Warm Inside - Cold Outside = CONDENSATION.  it's important to allow the moisture out of the hive....

hope you find this useful.  some years...the bees will propolis my holes shut - i leave them that way - figuring they know best.  i proceed as "normal" and let them reopen the holes as they need it.  if this doesn't print well for you, let me know - i can send you a pdf.
