Checked my 2 hives. Appears they made it through the harsh NewEngland winter. Got to -26 a couple nights. Anyways, thought the bees would run out of honey and starve because I didn't feed all winter and the cold weather never let up to allow me to open up the hives. I opened both hives yesterday 3/18. Tons of dead bees on the bottom (10,000 -20,000) in each hive, but still lots of bees left. Didn't see the queen in either hive. Didn't see any brood either. There was tons of honey though. The bottom deep was about 7 frames full of honey, The upper deeps has about 5 frames of comb mostly uncapped honey. What to do? I didn't really have time to look for the queen so she might be there. Just would like to see some brood.
