Re: Did I over feed my bees last fall?
Your post mortem does not give enough information for an accurate diagnosis. Where were the frames full of honey, in relation to the starved bees? Was there empty comb between the bees and the frames. For example, here is a 10-frame box, h=honey, e=empty, b=starved bees.
hhhheeebbe or hheeebbeeh There you have 10 frames in each example, plenty of honey, but the bees still starved. A sudden cold snap can trap the cluster and make it unable to move to honey, then it starves. Happens all too frequently. It isn't that you necessarily overfed, it just happens.
