I had two hives going into winter. Lost one over the weekend. The hive had two deeps and one medium of honey. Not sure what happened, but I think moisture played a large part in the loss. Anyway, the other hive is doing very well. The cluster covers about 4-5 frames in the upper brood box which is 10 frames.
Back to the dead colony... I found a frame located in the bottom brood box which looked as though something other than a bee was eating it. See attached photoIMG_6259.jpg I was unable to locate mouse poop. There were a few other frames like it too.
