here is the shock!
this morning i inspected a new location.
well situated on a slope, not too wet for rain forrest.
i put 2 good nucs there about 3 weeks ago.
10 days ago i checkked and all was good.
today one of the nucs is empty - completely.
nothing - no eggs, no brood, no capped, not a single bee, no queen, no dead bees - nothing.
no food, no pollen no honey no nothing.
ccd should have some things left.
does anyone know anything about ccd in ecuador? there is no source of information here.
what els could hhave caused this disapearence?
one thing though: i bought those two populations from a freind - they are not pure africanised-they have been very gentle.
and it looks like they have quite some italian in them. the only difference to alll my other hives, that are in different locations and alll africanised.
thanks for any infos ladies and gentleman.
i am very happy to be able to post here for info - ecuador is pretty difficult.
