Beekeeper’s Calendar – November

Monthly Beekeeping Guide

November & the bees:

The bees are continuing to cluster for winter. They may not yet go into a full winter cluster, and may actually develop two clusters. They may break cluster frequently on warm days and re-cluster again at night. However, they will begin to cluster for the winter.

November & the beekeeper:

Feed your light hives as long as the sugar water doesn’t freeze. Finish all winterization of your hives. On a cold day, when the bees are all inside, weed-eat around your hives. Enjoy Thanksgiving, and begin purchasing equipment for next year!
