My hive passed away over the winter.
All appearances is that it was from starvation.
I will be installing new bees soon into the hive.
There is comb,pollen and some honey stores still left.
What should I leave inside when I restart?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Everything. Dump em in, and they will have a nice head start with drawn comb, some pollen and some honey.

Keith,

Where are you getting your bees?  Do you know if they still have any available?  I know of a woman in Red Hook that is looking for a couple of packages.


BTW,  I live in Olivebridge.

Keith, your gonna have some really happy bees.  Right, they do have everything they need to start up their new home.  Amazing little creatures aren't they.  Have a beautiful day, good health.  Cindi
