Well, due to the unseasonably warm weather, I decided to have a look at my 2 hives... and thank the goddess I did! My (supposedly) strong hive had dwindled in numbers drastically, and I found that although I had a yound queen present, the workers were laying! And in my other hive I found that I had mouldy green comb. So I was not a happy beek! This is what I did - I took the mouldy frames out and replaced them. I replaced the solid floor with an open mesh floor, and attached some hardcore clips to the sides of the hive so that I could get a really nice seal on the hive between the brood box and the super. The hives I have are cheap pine, and it seems whenever I have cold wet weather and then dry sun they warp and crack like nobodies business.... I have started feeding the stronger hive with 1:1 syrup to encourage them, and I would like to try to put some young brood into the laying workers hive, but I am concerned that the weather is too cold at night for them to be able to maintain the heat and keep the brood warm. I do not want to waste the brood if the colony is doomed.. So if anyone has any advice out there, I would be grateful. I am also hoping to get some of the pheromone that attracts swarms so that I could make the most of any flying around... if anyone has any advice about how to use it etc, please, IÂ´m all ears! Thanks to everyone, hope to hear from you!
