    4 full hives and one nuc. The nuc that died, with my ignorant eyes, looks like it must have been from condensation. Lots of stores in the top 5 frames, and four frames of bees in the bottom 5. But I'll just have 10 drawn frames for the other nuc to use when I move it to ten fame equipment.

    Still a lot of snow, but not as much as a month ago. I can't wait for spring. The two nucs are wrapped together on the far left. This was back in Jan.

    Hey, that sounds pretty good to me! Congrats on your good survival percentage. :)
    Yes, those extra frames will give a nice boost to the other hives come Spring.
    Spring is almost here!

    I can't imagine keeping bees in all that snow! How they stay alive at all in that stuff boggles me. Sorry for your loss, those frames will sure be handy though.

    Hey Brendantm130

    Those must be Canadian bees to be doing that well in that weather! :mrgreen:
