Re: Want to convert to TBH
just my opinion here...
Now is not the time to start a new tbh. There is too much for the colony to do to make tht a reasonable path.
If cold temps are that close and pollen/nectar stores will be largely un-availble soon, re-queening is maybe only a 50/50 success, if that.
As the others say, if the one hive really is queenless, it is possibly better to combine the queenless with the queen right colony for now and hope all works out well enough in the spring to split them.
come back to tackle the prospect of starting the tbh another time once you think you got your bee issue addressed.
Like I said, just my 2 cent ( mark stole my dime, so that's all I got left... )
No, I am NOT a bee "Keeper". Anything I post is just my opinion. Take it easy and think for yourself.
