Backyard Beekeeping Daily Beehive Check


theOZer does his daily rounds, checks his two beehives, makes sure the girls, his bee colonies, are doing okay.

I’m curious about your setup. I’ve never seen that style of tarping. Can you explain a little bit about why you do this. If you explain it in the video I apologize I don’t have sound on my computer at work.


adagna, Those are ‘insulated’ tarps that I wrap my hives with. It just adds an additional layer of protection against the elements (weather conditions). I had removed the wood planks from the sides and bottoms of the hives that I use as insulation but because May was such a mild month weather-wise I had been keeping the tarps on the hives. Please see my bee vid “Beehive Burlesque” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-PVA8vEk1M) to see how I wrap my hives for winter.
