Hi from Iowa,
Me and my father just started beekeeping, we have 4 hives set up (3 at my grandpa's, and 1 at my grandpa's buddy's house)
So far we've had done alright with the bee's at my grandfathers, but the 1 at his friends house, well the bee's have rejected and killed two queens...now the bee's are dying at an enormous rate (Well since they're queenless).
Is there any explanation? Weather? Anything else? If i need to post this somewhere else let me know.
