Shipping Time Information: Our Winter Bee Kinds are very popular. We ship the boards only after it gets cold enough in Illinois that the candy will not melt. We began shipping orders this year on Nov. 1 in the order in which we received them. If ordering at this time, please allow 3-4 weeks for shipping. These are for winter use only. Thank you for your patience.
Our WINTER-BEE-KIND board insulates the top, provides upper ventilation and comes with 5 lbs. of candy with pollen for the bees to eat should they need it during the winter. NOW WITH HONEY B HEALTHY AND AMINO B BOOSTER! Each candy board also has pollen embedded into the candy sugar to give the bees the protein they need in their feed as well. This WINTER-BEE-KIND board insulates, ventilates and feeds your bees as a single unit.
Just install it above your bees, put on the top cover and you’re set! The candy portion faces down toward the cluster and the insulation faces up.
We use a special piece of insulation that is backed with a thin piece of metal to help reduce condensation in the hive. It has a special upper vent which also serves as an exit and entrance for bees as well as a place to help excess condensation escape. Do not delay. This board can be placed onto the hive in the fall or at any time in the winter, just place it on as fast as possible. The WINTER-BEE-KIND also comes with our recipe on how to make our candy so that you can refill your candy section when needed, usually about once a month, depending on how much honey is in the hive.
