Winter losses

Well two strong hives going in to winter oxalic treatment carried out over xmas all appeared to be well plenty of stores left

Lifted the lids today to place a little fondant as one hive was feeling a little light and found Hive No1 to be empty apart from a large pile of dead bees on the floor

Hive No2 on the other hand is absolutely stuffed with bees and stores almost depleted

Funny old game this bee keeping lark
