In this hive's case I'm kinda like Bjorn. It never amounted to much. I had requeened it, they had superseded themselves before and after I requeened it. And just would not grow/produce. Why, I have no idea. When I went to refill the feeder this evening they were gone, hive was empty except for fire ants. I counted five empty queen cells in it. Lots of pollen, no SHB, caught it before moths moved in. No stored honey/sugar (probably robbed). Now maybe this spring I can get some decent bees in this comb and boxes. It's non productive to me to feed and care for bees that stay stagnant.
