    Yea i'm a little confused on that too. There's eastern and western variants but the stripes on the one in your picture say western??? The typical Eastern ones and all the ones i've seen here in jersey have much less yellow so idk

    Nice! Also your location in your bio says you're near Guelph. If i got that correct you're in a good spot for this hobby. University of Guelph is a big deal in the beekeeping game with all their youtube videos and their over-wintering prowess. I'm trying their method of overwintering a single brood box with one of my hives this year:fingerscrossed:

    Do yours go through most or all of their honey over winter? How active are they in the middle of winter where you're at?

    Pretty active , we get maybe 3-4 days of cold and then it’s back at them. I have notice a brood break in most , Florida is funny I haven’t kept bees any where else. I can start my build up in December and get ready to make splits around February 2nd week.
