I had 5 hives I couldnt get in last fall to pull honey. Since they was in a remote area and weather wouldnt permit. they was overwintered with 2 medium honey supers and a queen excluder I finally got around to geting out there this morning to pick up the deadouts. And to my suprise 4 of the 5 hives are still going strong. Total suprise to find the bees in the top deep. Along with brood. All I can figure is they didnt move on up since they had enough moved down to winter on. Has anyone else seen this happen

It suprised me i went out to load up the dead outs. After last fall I'm going to move hive where its easier to get into. While its great to have hives in a remote area to keep people away from them. I got to remote and it kept me out as well
