My Google calendar reminded me several days ago that beehives should be wrapped on Thanksgiving. This year has been so warm and dry, it's not a big deal that I ignored it. Plus there's the fact that I don't have any bees in my hives. My point is, no matter what tool or method you use to determine when to do what for your bees, it's important to be flexible and adjust to the situation at hand. I'm sure if I had bees in my hives, with this weather I'd likely be feeding. How about you? How's the situation in your beeyard?


Just like a young tree, a hive should be wrapped on Thanksgiving. If you have a cozy, now is the ideal time to put it on. See "How to wrap a hive":
