So, I locked both hives down for two days, did the wet sheet gig and today-went back to "normal". These are my Carnies (the second second shot is of a partial body count).

Last year I had a hive being robbed ..we cobbled together a robber screen and that solved the problem.

Oh, Bendbill! I literally gasped when i saw that second photograph. Just this morning, i was wondering how your hives were doing. The resiliency of a colony is certainly being tested in your yard. It's good to hear people say their hives rebounded well from similar attacks.

Nature is so brutal at times.

What's a wet sheet gig?

Hoping to get this nailed down. My wife loves the bees but has a lot on her plate. I have been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer. I am hoping to have these hives stable and healthy but have said to my bride of 23 years that she should feel fine selling the hives if need be.
