Well, the good news is that I have been able to order some more bees. I have the hive at my mom’s all blocked off so that it doesn’t get robbed. Since in my research, it seems that it was just a winter kill I will be putting the new package of bees onto the provisions that are in there. The other set of bees have had some warm days and so I’ve already given them some syrup. There is more to do, though, hopefully, those girls will pull through what should be our last blast of cold. I also have to paint the new hive and get it set up and ready for when this new package arrives.
