Hi I am a new beekeeper. I have two hive that we started this year. One hive has been okay while the other has under-preformed all year. We are now approaching winter and I don't think the hive can survive the winter. We live in WV so we will have winter but the severity is unpredictable. The upper brood box is completely empty while the lower has some capped honey. I am feeding both hives now but has made no difference in the poor hive. I had planned to replace the queen in the spring because she was a poor preformer. My question is should I write off this hive, take the good frames from this hive and put it into the good hive to strengthen it for the winter? Or is there something more I can do for this hive?
