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.
