Let's just say that you were out checking your hives and most looked good. One of them you can hear bees against the wall but not near as loud as the rest. "I'll check that first chance I get" you say. Then you actually had a day where it was warm enough that you figure all your hives should be flying. You drive out to check and sure enough, they are. Except that one, a few bees but not what you'd expect. It's warm enough to crack the inner cover and you peek inside. Only the last couple of frames on one side have any bees on them. You quickly lift them out and have a quick check. No queen, no brood and only a few hundred bees. What would you do? This is of course all hypothetical and never really happened. Any similarities to any persons (rat) real or imagined are purely coincidental! No animals were harmed in the process.
