Dressed In Silver

In previous winters, my honey bee hives were wrapped in tar paper. This year, they are a tad more glamorous, since I'm using aluminum coated bubble wrap, instead.

But the really important change I've made is that the top and bottom boxes are filled with wood shavings to help wick away excess hive moisture.

This winter's fashion is silver lamé.

Shavings filled top boxes have two screened holes per side.

On the 'cat walk', Miss Ellie Mae is cozy in a luxurious tortoiseshell fur.
