    Default Honey???

    Is it possible to keep bees for honey around Fairbanks? Is there anybody out there who has or does do this? Just kind of think it would bee neat (excuse the pun, i couldnt help it) to try this out.
    Thanks!

    You can keep bees through the summer and get a fair amount of honey come fall (depending on your location). The hard part is over wintering them. It takes a lot to get them to survive the winter.

    Talking Keeping Bees...

    Wintering bees is tough.I have raised bees for years, and find the best way is to have the supers in a open faced shed(like a wood shed) that keeps snow away from the openings and insulate the boxes with foam.Keeps them from getting "BMS" also
