I am bummed. Checked my hives today. One looked like this. It's been a hard winter in Michigan and the midwest as many of you know. The hive looked nothing like this 2 weeks ago. Note the number of abdomens. Why is that?
Is this colony doomed?
There is still a cluster but I've seen it diminsh some in the last 2 weeks. I have a moisture box on top with a screened bottom so it's easy to look down through the screen at them.
Anything I can or should do right now for this hive or the hive next to it?
