Hey all, newbie beekeeper here in Hinesburg.
I have just a single hive this season, it’s currently one deep and three mediums tall. The bottom deep and first medium are filled with brood.
I love the idea of having a one brood box system, and I’m considering implementing this method shown in the picture attached (starting next season).
Wondering what concerns there might be, mainly given our local climate and winters here. For those using queen excluders, do you remove the queen excluder before winter?
