* * * Winter Bee Kinds * * *

Our very popular Winter-Bee-Kinds go on sale TOMORROW, Saturday, August 1st. They will be shipped in the order in which the orders are placed so be ready this weekend to place your order. They will ship in November in cooler weather, usually near the end of November. They are a favorite among beekeepers across the country in helping honey bees make it through the winter.

Our Winter-Bee-Kinds provide the nourishment your bees need to remain warm and strong in the coldest of climates. They also provide insulation and ventilation to rid the colony of stale, moist air from the hive. In areas of very harsh winters, we recommend wrapping your colony and only use the exit/vent port on the winter-bee-kind located at the top of the colony. This helps prevents mice from entering through the lower entrance and allows your bees to take cleansing flights more easily on colder days.

Although the website says "Sold Out" now, it will say "Add To Cart" this Saturday, August 1, 2020. Be ready. Order for 10 or 8 frame hives. Here's the link:
