Something new in beekeeping? Self-Harvesting Honey?

Hi Joe,

Just checking.  I want to get it right this time.  My bees are still using sugar water and storing only a little honey.  To prepare for the winter, I'm thinking about asking George to build some of the sugar feeders.  As I understand it, they are just a 2" space  in the bottom of the hive where I can put granulated sugar, enough to support them over winter. Do you think this is a good idea?

Hello Joe,

Thank you so much for presence, assistance, and knowledge with my hive last week! I greatly appreciate it!

Never mind my last comment, looks like it will be a trapout that can be pushed to the spring, but I still would like to hear your opinion on winter removal survival!
