    Re: Aggressive Hive

    Yes the top hive cannot be weak,all the bees from the bottom do not come up at once, they come through as the brood below emerges, the queen stops laying as there is no income.

    Sometime in all of our lives we have been the "kid" who knows nothing, most of us get through it.
