Hi all, haven't posted for a while so hope you're all ok and having better luck than most of the keepers that I have spoken to this year here in the UK!
Had a phone call today to have a look at some bees behind some sofits and got all excited at the prospect (due to me not having any bees in my hives at the moment).
Anyhoots as I removed the sofit although there was a large amount of comb and some good honey stores there were only a few hundred (if that bees) so yet another colony that has collapsed.
It's always a shame to see our bees dying away especially after I carefully prepared everything to remove the colony carefully today.
Ah well, such is life I suppose.
With the frosts that we've been having here of late, do you guys and gals think the bees would have taken to my hive okay if put in on a warm day and fed ok, if of course they were present in any sort of numbers?
