I'm ashamed to admit it, but I have been so busy this year (not an excuse, I know) that I have neglected my one remaining hive terribly. I took a look today and need advice on what to do. This hive wintered with one deep and 3 shallows. Last time I looked the deep (bottom position was empty, and there was some brood in the 2nd box. I removed the top shallow (also empty) at that time. The hope was that the bees would start gathering nectar and push the queen down into the bottom deep. Today I found this: On the SBB: Many, MANY dead larva mummies. Entire bottom pretty much covered. Bottom deep: Nearly empty. Some nectar being stored in the tops of frames 2-6 (in a 10-frame box) Middle shallow: Frame 10 empty. Frames 7-9 had nectar and pollen. Frames 2-6 had really spotty brood. Cells between the brood looked like they had liquid in them, but I forgot my glasses and could not see much more. Frame 2 had one open queen cup on the bottom. Frame 1 had some drone brood and (I think) uncapped nectar. Top shallow: Frames 8-10 heavy with nectar. Frame 7 nearly solid brood. Frames 2-6 had brood but not as solid. Frame 2 had 2 open queen cups on the bottom. In the uncapped cells I could see some larvae and some liquid. Frame 1 had nectar. Cover: Tiny bit of new comb being drawn above inner cover hole. I did not see the queen, but that it typical for me. There were a good number of bees in the hive, but the times I have looked (evenings) there have not been many flying. Any advice on what I should do? Shuffle boxes? Add honey super? Plan on no harvest this year?
