blckoakbees. I am thinking that the colony that you think is weak, should be united with one of the other colonies, providing it is not sick. If you think it will not overwinter, might as well make your stronger colonies more strong.
Wonder what kind of advice you will get from our forum friends, but that is what I would do. Kill that queen and use newspaper to unite this weak colony, if it is so weak, it will probably not overwinter anyways, like you said. Have a wonderful day, you will love being in our forum family. Cindi
