I had my two hives next to eachother - Hive #1 has survived winter and is strong. Hive #2 died. My question is - we are having a warm up right now and the bees are moving.... they are also robbing. Should I remove the dead hive and prevent anymore robbing?... or should I continue to let hive #1 rob out hive #2. I assume they are robbing out both honey and pollen. funny- because I had removed a complete super from my dead hive and set it on top of hive #1, and the bees moved up into it - guessing they were low on stores because the hive was light when I lifted it. Also - this weekend it will be in the mid 50's. Should I break open the hive, add pollen patties, alternate brood boxes? ... or should I wait a little longer until spring is here to stay? .... also is pollen patties necessary, or will the blooms provide enouph? Appreciate the responses?
