    I had to focus the last year on a health battle. Seems I did better then our bees, had 3 strong hives going into winter and dad did everything he could to protect them. He wrapped them up in tarps when we were going form 70 one day to 0 the next. He did good but there we didn't put any back up food on them. So we lost them all.

    Welcome back to the forum.

    I hope your health continues on the better side. Perhaps you might like to describe your hives after their winter deaths. It might help a newbee in diagnosing a dead-out and preparing for next winter.

    Best wishes.

    It may sound inapropriate on a bekeeping forum, but, without any hesitation, I say YOUR health comes first. There are a lot of bees in this world and they can be replaced. There's only one you, and you, Tim, are irreplaceable.
    Welcome back. :grin:
