Re: New question / Old problem
I also believe that roundup had nothing to do with it, I use roundup around my hives all summer long with no problems. I do recomend using close to dark or at night when the bees are not flying. I also agree with Joel on his assessment, no stores or pollen, possible they hit a dearth and left. This happened to us this summer, hives boiling over with bees with lots of stores, a few weeks later, hives were empty of stores.... we caught it in time and saved them but it was a close call.. they went through the stores very quickly.
