Allen, I looked carefully in every bit of comb and saw 0 nectar...poor things were starving. The other colony had nectar but very little and neither had capped honey.
If you notice towards the end you can see the brood comb go into a hive body...no trash bags! :-D There was a good bit of empty comb there that did get rendered. It looked as if that wall had been occupied by as many as 5 previous colonies. For some reason (my stupidity I expect) the clip where I showed this and all of the hive beetle and wax moth damage was omitted.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
