I've decided to join after failing at beekeeping. I caught a swarm last June but was too ignorant to protect them from varroa mites. R.I.P. girls. I'm here to learn everything I can.  Wish I'd thought to look for a forum like this one last year! Edgy

Welcome to the forum Edgy, we all go through this at one time or another.
Just get yourself some more and start over.
It's part of becoming a beekeeper.

don't consider a loss, a failure.  we all lose hives.  learn what you can.  do the best you can.  learn to live with the losses. 

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Yep, don't worry about was has happened, just try not to do it again.  We can remember the lessons better after a lost.  And you will probably loose another as time goes on.  Good luck to you.
