I have contacted the Wisconsin State Inspector to inspect my hives twice a year....Once in the fall and then again in the spring to see how there doing going into winter and then again in Spring to see how they wintered...Thanks everyone for your opinions and advice. ..Also, I will have some members of our local bee club inspect some of these hives on the 12th of Oct......I'll let you know what I find out.....I tried posting pictures of a hive and the frame, but being new here on the forum, they won't let me yet....I have to be better known to post pics. I appreciate that about this forum, as they do watch out for you here.
