We winterized the hives this weekend. We should have done it on Saturday but instead we did it Sunday. It snowed about 2 inches. Here is a picture of the bee yard in the morning.

The moisture board is for soaking up moisture. In the winter the bees make heat and cause condensation to happen. The moisture board keeps water from dripping on the bees and freezing them.
