So the first week of August I discovered a small beehive on our property while mowing. We went out and got some equipment and ordered some. We checked on them today and they seem to be half as big as it was. We plan on capturing them this monday. So 1 - why the size reduction? And 2 - help!!! This is my first attempt at beekeeping, it's a really small hive, and I'm willing to do whatever to get them through the winter.
