Howdy all it has been a while since i last been here but i am glad to be back. I have three hives that did not make it this winter back in the fall some of my hives stored up enough honey to make it with a good cluster but these did not they did not build up good i think the queen shut down and just did not start back up in time so when i went to take a look they were in a small cluster near the top bars dead. they had plenty of stores around them but the weather was very cold and then warm at nite it fell down to 16 degrees and the day temps was in the 30's. Well i cleaned them up and put the frames that has stores back in and close them up will it hurt new packages if i put them on these frames the hives were checked by the inspector last fall and had a good bill of health. I also fed them fumaglin in thier syrup last fall i treated all my hives i now have.
