I have a first season Bee Thinking TBH.
I’m experienced with insulating Langstroth hives with Bee Cozy’s, and supplementing low production seasons with pollen patties.
What should I do to winterize / protect my TBH from our winters. I’m tempted to wrap in rigid insulation to protect from the elements. How many top bars should they have full of honey on average to winter. I know the general rule of thumb with Langs is 10 frames of honey. We’ve had a low production year, and I’m already offering pollen patties to supplement the 4-5 available frames in each hive.
