Getting ready for winter

Well it looks like the bees are thinking about it and so should i, over the last two weeks the bees have been forciably removing drones and getting themselves ready with the days getting shorter and having less time to forage.

We are getting towards the second week of varroa treatments with them having a big effect on the amount of dropping on the floor insert which bodes well for winter. after this we need to check for the amount of stores they have so that do not starve over the winter months.

hopefully with any luck all colonies will winter well and come through to the other side.
