November Brings Cooler Temperatures

The good news is that the hives are too heavy to lift.  I have been feeding syrup with Honey-B-Heathy but they're slowing down taking the syrup.  It's time to start thinking about moisture in the hives.  Starting this coming week, the temps are going to be lows around 40 and highs around 60.  I plan on takking the top feeders off and maybe doing some open feeding behind the house, away from from the hives.  Later on I'll probably put some sugar in the hives (the mountain camp method).  It's time to plan for Old Man Winter.
