    Is it wise to winterize nucs in a shed or a garage? The entrance will be screened so they don't wander out in the garage and they will be put outside during warm spell to cleanse.

    Re: Hive check - lots of drones

    Maybe the queen is a drone layer. Meaning she does not have more sperm to fertilize her eggs. You may have ro requeen. And if the queen is missing, then you have a worker layer.
