Well right when I thought I was starting to get a handle on beekeeping, I checked my hives yesterday and noticed that 3 of my good hives were completely gone. 1 hive in particular was doing really well. It was stacked with 3 deeps and the bees seemed happy. I hadn't checked the hives in 3 days and within that 3 day period 3 hives completely bailed.
I'm currently using Italians and now I'm contemplating using another breed. Has anyone ever had this happen to them and if so, do you have better luck with a particular breed?
Thanks for the input gang. RATS!!!!!!!
