The Bees In November

The Bees

The cold weather will send the bees into a cluster.

The Beekeeper

There is even less to do in the hive this month. It’s time to add that entrance reducer to the hive to keep field mice from nesting inside. Store your equipment away for the winter.

Attend your bee club meetings. Sit around and talk to your friends about how you did this past season.
