    Default Cut Outs Without Much Honey

    Have any of you guys been removing colonies that had little to no honey lately. The last 5 or 6 I've done have had little to now honey. Surely not enough to keep them through the winter. The fall flow in South Carolina doesn't typically produce much honey for the winter.

    I removed one in the mountains of North Carolina today that had maybe 3 pounds of honey that was all capped and maybe 20,000 bees. Really not a good combination.

    I'm a bit concerned about this recent trend.

    Spring was late around here and the spring flow was off, but we have been seeing more honey recently in wild colonies. Cheers.

    Does it look like they have been robbed out or maybe a new (late) swarm that moved in recently?
