    Default Did I over feed my bees last fall?

    I lost both my hives this winter. There were not nearly a many dead bees in either hives as I would have expected to see, and although there were several frames of honey left, I found a bunch of bees head down in the cells indicating starvation.

    Is it possible that I fed too much and they were honey bound and did not have room to raise sufficient brood resulting in too small a cluster going into winter?
