1.  With snow falling all around us, it is a good time to clean any nesting trays which have benn emptied of cocoons earlier in the fall/ Sept-October. 

2.  For me, today was a good day to clean out some Cocoon shelters.  They are usually covered in bee feces.   

2.  If cocoons are stored inside a fridge, make sure  your fridge has at least a 2- cup   container of water on one of the shelves.
