So winter has reached Crete and it is time for beekeeping gear maintenance. During the winter we are going to go through various procedures to keep all of our gear in good shape but also to help the bees get through the winter and prepare for their growth and increase in spring.
Today we boiled a few cap openings that will be placed in the beehives in paraffin wax at 160 Celsius to make them water resistant and increase their strength.
