I’m soliciting suggestions and advice.
My bees (single hive) did not make it through winter; which of course breaks my heart, however, I would like to try again. And this time, if I can manage it, I may try to establish 2 hives, we’ll see.
Question. Regarding the deep hive body, and the supers, can I keep & reuse the comb and comb with honey or should I start over with all fresh? The reason for the failure is unknown to me.
I looked in the hive yesterday and right now I didn't see an insect problem.... but without any bees and the weather warming I’m afraid moths and etc will become a problem quickly.... What do I do? Is there a way to manage this until I can round up some new bees?
ps. I haven't been on in awhile but it is so nice to know you are out there.
