We congratulate Forager member, Paul, for coming in third place in the state honey bee essay contest. This year, the theme of the contest was:
Overwintering: Bee Survival through the Cold Season
Honey bees have developed special skills to overwinter in the United States. Please discuss one of these skills and then include a discussion about what you do to prepare your hives for winter. Include a photo of one of your hives, either using infrared technology or showing winter wrap, hay bales, special feeders, etc. to demonstrate how you prepare your hives for winter.
Paul’s win brings him a cash prize of $25 and a honey bee related book. Congratulation again, Paul, and thanks for representing the Foragers in such a grand fashion!
