- Mar 23, 2014
I lost 5 out of six topbar hives and 4 out of 24 langs. most of the topbars wre week going in,didn't expect much there. I know 2 of the langs that were strong ate their stores around them and didn't move to honey, both have 50# honey left. one had mouse in and one had a severe mite load.
Those that lost ,have you checked mite losad?? you can check bottom board or gather the bees and rinse them in a strainer and see how many mites they had Roger NJ
