And now we have no bees
We took the hive apart and found....................
Some dead brood but not much.
NO HONEY AT ALL!
Lots of pollen packed cells.
One hatched queen cell and one capped but not hatched queen cell.
And not as many wax worms as I expected. It looked like they were just getting hold of the hive so hadnt been there that long.
As we took the super off that hive a a week and a half ago and it had bees then, what happened between then and now?
And what do we do with the frames of pollen and drawn comb? I put the two frames with lots of webbing into the freezer and fed several pupa to a chicken but what now? Can I freeze the frames in batches - freezer space limited - seal them into plastic bags and then put it all back together with a package of bees in the spring?
