Tapped on one hive put my ear to it and hear nothing, tapped on the second hive and they are buzzing like mad. Does that mean the quiet hive is totally kaput. I'm tempted to take it all apart to find out, just tear it down and start fresh with a nuc I'm overwintering in the spring time.

Im a new beek and the other hive and nuc is doing fine. They funny thing is the quiet hive was the most active all summer, they were fine going into winter and now it seems like that done up and died
