    Default Combining in December

    I have two hives: one has about 400 bees, and the other has maybe 250 and is dwindling. Should I try to combine them this late in the year?

    I wouldnt risk combining at this point. If the dwindling hive has a high mite count or another cause then you risk wiping out all the bees with the combine. Better to get a healthy package of bees then keeping around a sickly hive into the new year.
