Tasks to be on top of this time of year:
· Make sure there are no mice in your hives and install mouse guards
· Check for honey stores and begin to feed if hives are light
· Finish harvest, extraction, get extracted frames cleaned up by hives
· Check that hive woodenware is in good shape for winter
As you are putting away items for winter don’t hesitate to set aside a tool or piece of equipment that could be used as a door prize!
