Hi Ron I'm 6 miles east of Redding. Did you have some hives survive into winter?  I didn't  medicate  for anything this fall I guess CCD got mine this time. Maybe we will have a spring this year and will be able to get off to a early start.

Hi Ron  This was the second year, different problems both years. I hope to beat the odds with numbers and different methods top bar, African, ware etc. Just kidding sort of.  I don't know what the heck I'm doing. I thought for sure The New Carniolans were going to be the answer. I will try at least one other hive style next spring what have I to lose.

If you have questions just let me know and I can give you advice and what not, hopefully get you a few hives living through next year.
