Do you put out fresh water out for animals during the winter? You should. It's difficult for animals to find unfrozen water during winter. Quite often, the only unfrozen water they're able to find is water that's been treated with antifreeze. And while antifreeze is sweet to the taste, it's highly toxic and deadly. It's a common toxicity we see in the veterinary ER during winter months.
If you think of it, try leaving fresh, unfrozen bowls of water out for wildlife near you. I do it daily when it's freezing. I also put out water during summer months when water is sparse. My mom and dad taught me this :).
I'm planning on taking an apiary course starting February. It's a hobby my dad does and I've always wanted to learn more about.
Have a good weekend, friends.
