I went to inspect for the first time this afternoon after a long winter. I thought I had 2 survivors. Turns out the traffic in/out of one is a robbing frenzy. I had a video, but doesn't appear to be an option to upload it here. It was a small swarm from last summer, no signs of foul brood, etc. I plan to let the robbers clean it out, then freeze the hive bodies to thwart wax moths. Does this seem like a reasonable plan?
