Late fall harvest

Today the temp is 45 and the bees in all three hives are active.  See no pollen coming in so I think they are storing up on water.  Insulation complete.  Had Bee Meetup last night, small turn-out and everyone is hoping for a surviving winter.  Got and gave several tips which will be useful.  A couple harvested to much honey, as when I said that the Langstroph hive needs at least 75 lbs. to winter over, several said they didn't leave that much.
