Well this is what's left of my nuc yard .

Had 13 what a year so cold just all the bad and none of the good.
Looks like I'm going to end up with 9 DBL. deeps and 6 nucs .
Hoping to start feeding soon.

On the bright side...you have enough to build from and you have the room and equipment to do it.
Good luck in 2014...and keep up the posts as they are followed by many.

Yeah, we will follow GLOCK too. I would like to know why put a fence in front?
Is it for keeping out the chicken or dogs?

I see the problem. Improper use of a gargoyle. It belongs in a high vantage point. Cant protect anything setting on the ground.

Maybe to swap it with the position of the naked lady statue on top of the highest vantage point of the hive?
Maybe that will do the trick, eh.

You in particular have been prominent in sharing your experience with OAV--thanks!

Do you have any thoughts about this--in particular, you showed heavy mite infestations in many of your hives, which were then saved with successive treatments. Any correlation with the hives that didn't make it?

We had a long cold winter the worst since I started beekeeping . Most my dead outs where from starvation so it was my fault. I plan on only getting better and will be working on my bee nutrition and varroa management . Its going to be a great year I'm sure.
sqkcrk----Here's the babygoyles mother.:D

Bee pro I bet this will make things better.
There keeping out the VARROA:rolleyes:

I suppose you can blame yourself but ....you did try to over winter nucs in a terrible year! Think of the ones that came through safely...no mean feat. Good on ya:)
