Hi. I have two hives in Perth WA and we are coming into cooler temps dropping from regular over 30 °C days to 21 °C days with rain etc. I was wondering if its still fine to harvest the flow hives during this time with winter coming on proper in June - August?
From what I have read and heard the bees need honey to keep them feed over the winter but with WA being warmer how does that affect my harvesting?
Although the days are cooler and shorter the sun is still out and the hives still seem to be productive and filling up the flow frames at a decent pace (a few weeks).
Any advice appreciated ;]
