    We have just been asked to help a weekend beekeeper with his hives and after a quick inspection are quite concerned for their survival. He has 2 hives and replaces the bees each year since they die out. These hives have no stores, so it is easy to see why they die out. We added an emergency bag of sugar mush immediately to them, but what are the chances we can keep them alive? My husband is going to make some sugar candy frames to put in the top hive body, but would it be better to do the candy board and remove the top hive body? There are alot of bees in both hives, and we'd hate to see them expire.

    I have used the Brushy Mtn winter inner covers with their candy receipe. Not hard but you need a candy thermometer. My bees loved it

    Jim Given, did it take 16 lbs to make 1 board. And have you used these before, if so how do the bees like them?

    Good description. Thanks.
