November

 The Bees

Cold weather will send the bees into a cluster.

The Beekeeper

There is even less to do in the hive this month. It’s time to add that entrance reducer to the hive to keep field mice from nesting inside.

Store your equipment away for the winter.

Attend your bee club meetings.

 Inspections

Check for excess moisture, condensation under inner cover

 Nutrition

Feed 2 to 1 sugar water or candy boards

Only neglected colonies that weren’t fed earlier will NEED solid feed this early.

Natural pollen sources still abundant.

 Pests

Assess IPM efforts and plan for next year.
