    The hive I bought at an auction six or seven years ago and never did anything to it needed a new home. The wood was rotting down around them and I also noticed they were not booming early as usual.

    A mouse had over wintered in the bottom of the hive is why they were not booming. Just did a cut out and stuck them in a five frame nuc for the time being. I am going to use this in a trap out shortly.

    These ladies were so sweet to allow me to cut up their house and not even give me the first headbutt.
