Is my queen alive?
I definitely have a dwindling of my worker population as I have noticed numerous dead bees being carried out and left at the doorstep of my TBH. But I am also worried that I may not have a queen surviving. Without physically making an observation of my combs (not about to do that in the throes of winter), can I safely make the assumption that my queen is alive just because I still have workers alive in January?
Thanks for any input.
