Went and checked on the hives in the outyards and when all the smoke settled we lost over 50% of our hives. The losses were in numerous yards, so it isn't specific to one location. Went into the Winter with strong hives, over 30 pounds of honey on each hive, pollen patties, mountain camp sugar feeders, and checked for Mites prior to Winter....and within the last month this loss. I don't see any sign of diseases, and looks like the warm, freezing, warm, freezing weather might of had a big factor in all of the losses. Didn't know if anyone else was hit like this. Guess we are going to get to do mores splits, swarm captures, and cutouts again this year. https://picasaweb.google.com/1118636...veLosses22512# Hope these pics help others out.
