CoolEatz Hives Ready For Rain/Frost

Stopped by this afternoon to check out the CoolEatz Hives. They are doing awesome. A lot of activity at the entrance and Jesse had her handymen build a nice and solid roof above the hives. It uses clear corrugated roofing so sun will shine through while keeping rain and frost off of the hives.

    That’s great that the hives are doing so well. Jack, do you check for mite counts often? Just wondering, as I lost 3 hives to Varroa this September. Sad because it’s totally preventable. Now I have an action plan, as well as I know what to look for, and will not be letting it happen again. Hopefully your adopted hives, as well as your backyard hives have low counts.
