Good point.  I've gardened in the desert southwest for so long I
neglected to mention that colonies might not be able to over-winter
in the north.  Here, a leaf-bin provides sufficient shelter and they
don't have to leave the garden to hibernate.  In a colder climates,
I assume you'd need to provide better winter quarters.
