Buried Bees

1 Feb

DSC_0563Snow is one factor to consider in designing a hive stand. My bee hives that are on lower stands got half-buried in the snow. The ones on higher stands didn’t get buried, but the entrances did get blocked. My hives don’t have upper entrances, so the bees were snowed in for a few days. Those same days were too cold for flying anyway, so no harm done, I think.
