The approach of winter denotes cooler and cooler weather when they’ll crawl inside a nice warm beehive to build their nests. A mouse will stay in the corner of the hive, well away from the bees, but it will chew through wax and frames to make room. The smell of its urine will put your bees off the hive in the spring.


Keep mice out by adding an entrance reducer or mouse guard in the fall. If you find a mouse in your hive, chase it out and remove its nest and any frames it has chewed.
