I can hear the queen now, flap faster you drones,I'm cold!!!!!!!! or do they kill off all the drones in the winter?

I want to get into the hobby, might do so this spring. I remember reading of an interesting way to ensure you're not overharvesting the honey, which is to harvest in the late spring, after the bees have made it through the winter and have plenty of food available – have you heard anything about that technique good or bad?

Thank you for your efforts, enjoy your channel, you guys seem happy, that's a gift.
