Hi, I began keeping bees last spring and bought into the idea of using a durable, pest resistant, bee resistant, easy to install foundation. I began with intent of finding a good standard of equipment and conforming to it so as to concentrate on the bees and not on equipment. I started with two hives, one a local nuc., and one a 3lb package. The package hated the plastic, drew comb sporadically, and they were mad every time I opened them. The split took off and I got 35lbs+ of honey, strong brood, etccc... Both colonies have overwintered and I began feeding today as it is nice(60 degrees and flying).
Question- should I requeen the overwintered bad hive(With a queen from strong nuc supplier) because of my equipment policy or let em have a second chance?
