From 15 hives that survived, took 11 laying queens 1-1,5 frames of brood, pollen and honey, and moved them to a new location. Other queens were not laying, so I got rid of them. Introduced new queens, carnies at the home yard, and italians at Gary's farm. New queens were accepted very well, bees were working hard to free them from the cage. Dandelions are up, not many bees, as last year at this time, but they were buzzing and looked happy. Sprayed all bees with thymolated syrup. Hope for the best.
