I had to take a year off of BeeKeeping to build my house... (did most of the work myself). I had one TBH that is located on my property. I have not managed it all all since 2006 - however last summer it was strong, and I am sure it had loads of stores that I did not get at all. We had a couple 50 degree days last week, and I went out and checked it, and they are nice and strong so far. What should I expect w/ this hive when I began managing it again this year - since I missed a whole year?
Should I cut out a lot of the old comb?
any suggestions on any things I should be doing?
