Smoke on the Beehives

Smoke on the Beehives

In winter, we provide sugar water to the hives so the bees can supplement their stores of honey with extra nutrition while their pollen sources are bare.  The first step is to smoke the hive to calm the bees, then lift the cover and insert the treat without being stung.  Fortunately, it won't "bee" long before these creatures can find more than enough on their own, but until then a little smoke can get in your eyes - all without a sting.
