"Winter patties are simply more carbs for the bees to eat during winter to help them stay warm.""

If they only contain carbs, what does the amount of pollen have to do with it?

Yep! all of my inner covers are notched. If I purchase inner covers that don't have the notch, it's pretty easy to put a notch in.

Rast, I'm talking about Winter patties which are lower in protein and won't promote more brood, then in spring you put on Spring patties which amps up the queen. Winter patties are simply more carbs for the bees to eat during winter to help them stay warm.

Bakers, fortunately no small hive beetle here.

The article is dated May, 2020.  I didn't hear about this.  It must have been put on the back burner due to Coronavirus.

In my part of the country, that would be a small hive beetle breeder.  Even in winter.  SHB like to snuggle in with the bees and over winter.
