Checked the hives today, seem to be doing good.
Happily eating the 15 lbs of sugar and patties..
That being said I have one hive- 2 deeps full of honey- not one bee in the hive...just an empty hive full of honey, not even any dead bees. However that being said I have two dead hives:
Lots of lady bugs inside
I checked all the bees and couldn't find any mites so I am at a loss, at first i thought the little orange thing to the left of the bees was a mite but it was not. I am still checking the dead bees to try and figure what I did wrong.
