The bees are all tucked up for the winter and are finally enjoying all the honey they made throughout the spring and summer.
To make sure they have enough food, however, we fed them some icing fondant. They don’t need as much water at this time of year so icing is the best way to feed them.
We placed it on top of the “crown board” where there is a little hole for the bees to get access to it.
This should keep them happy for at least a few weeks. We will keep checking them to see if they have enough food to get through the winter.
