    You need to set your hives back up. They appear to have fallen over.

    Yup, but fortunately we have are about to have cold blast coming down from Canada soon.

    Tomorrow morning our lows go into the upper 50, and the muggy conditions of this week will be a thing of the past.
    This weekend temperatures heading into the lower 40s in the mornings and may have a hard time getting to 70.
    Perfect Weather!

    CNY I would change the way you have your hive supported. No kidding it could easily blow over and puts a lot of stress on the center of the bottom board at the entrance. If you ever had to use an entrance reducer you might find it hard to get it out during a heavy flow.

    I still think varroa pressure to many mites has something to do with it also.
    This hive looked like this for at least 2 month and then after the first treatment with OAV thing looked like this.

    I had two that did this both had well over 3000 mites drop in 3 weeks of treatments .
    Just saying I go by experience.
    And no it did not swarm.
    Say hello to the bad guy!
