Hi folks, A friend gave me four hives a few months back and I did a quick rehab on the lids. My plans were to let them alone till spring and provide the with all new equipment and move the to my place. Just got a call from my friend. Two of four are totally dead. 6 mice were living in one and neither looked good inside. Mind you these hives have gone years without being worked My questions is this as bad as it looks? Should I burn all this equipment? And should I do something with the remaining two hives that are apparently active and healthy. On the outside.
