I guess I just need a shoulder to cry on. I lost one hive going into winter and see I've lost another. A third hive doesn't look very strong-- so I'm down to one strong hive. I like to keep 5!!

One question- I've stacked the hive boxes and supers, with some capped honey, using the (forgot the name) crystals. In spring do I need to do anything with that honey before giving it to a hive?

Thanks!
