I lost one hive out of the two. The older hive is dead and the newer hive was crazy active when it hit 50 degrees yesterday. To make matters worse my extractor died halve way through the extraction of the honey that was left on the dead hive.
I am thinking the hive was dead in the fall or shortly after. I saw dead bees everywhere in every box, no brood and no pollen. In the very top box there was a clump of live bees (no more than 100) but nothing looked like a queen. Below that was a solid box of honey and below that was the top brood chamber practically empty. I haven't dug into the bottom deep but I suspect it is empty. Unfortunately the battery in my camera was dead so I didn't get any photos.
I am back to the drip method for the last box of honey.
