Over Winter Ventilation


I have a Bee Thinking top bar hive. I live in northern NY were we have very long hard winters. I was wondering about winter ventilation. Should I close the screened vents. Maybe leave the one farthest from the opening open. What are you thoughts on this?


I think you’re safe to leave them all open. In my experience, if the bees don’t want it open they’ll seal it with propolis very quickly.
