Re: Hive in major trouble! SHB
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't see anything left to save, other than the combs and that's questionable. Like snl said, shake them off and those few bees left will find their way into the other hive. If you're going to save the combs, freeze them and either leave them in the freezer or take them out after a couple of days and spray them with BT and reuse next spring. Maybe you can make a split from your other colony then.
