Preparing for the Winter

Our bees are getting ready for the winter. Kicking out the drones and keeping the queen warm. 

I reduced the size of the opening and put a bottom board on.  During the winter the bees will cluster around the queen and on the brood keeping keeping them warm through the winter. They will keep the temp around 90 to 95 degrees. I have left a super (6 5/8" box) with honey in it for the bees to eat during the winter. My goal is to keep them alive and healthy through the winter.
