    Default From cold upstate NY

    Nice to be here. This will be my 4th year with bees. Have 3 Langs., 1 horizontal TBH and had a Warre that failed last fall. Looking forward to the spring and hoping my girls make it through the winter.

    Welcome, Turkeydogger. It's good to hear that you have lots of experience with beekeeping. Sorry to hear about your Warre hive failing though. Did you figure out why they failed?

    One beekeeper said it could have been what is called a suicide swarm. Possible there was a late swarm and the queen that was left was no good. Since there was no brood the bees figured they were doomed so they just left. Then the hive was robbed so I was left with 3 boxes of empty comb. Plan on trying again this spring

    Have you considered disease or what they call the disapearing disease. Now if you haven't heard of that learn how to spell disappearing and google it
