Wrapped Up For Christmas

While most everyone is occupied with wrapping gifts at this time of year, beekeepers have the added responsibility of wrapping their hives for over-wintering. It can be a big chore to prepare for the cold and we have been working away at this over the past few weekends. Today it was time for the tar paper and Tyvek. Each hive is wrapped individually.
It took awhile to work our way down the line...
... but we did it, and all are wrapped snugly for a long winter's sleep. We even added a bit of Christmas for them.
The hive sporting the bow is the Queen Street Swarm which had a very productive and successful season.
Now...on to wrapping the presents...
