We checked on our hive today, and it was full of large ants, wax moth larva and very few bees. Two full supers... Did our bees swarm off? There weren't any dead ones, no queen, no bee brood, and about 100 bees left.
We have scraped all the wax and honey off. It was very sad. Do we need to wash the frames, plastic comb? Also, it gets very hot here in coastal sc, so we placed them in partial to full shade. Was this a bad idea?
Should we save any of the clean looking wax or get rid of all of it?
So many questions...
