Hi there from New York State,
The winter has started to let up. The temperature today was around 55 to 60° so my wife decided to have a look and see how the bees are doing and unfortunately she didn’t hear any activity so she decided to open up the roof and noticed nothing no activity.
So upon further inspection we have found that we completely lost our bees. We have no idea what went wrong they had plenty of stores of honey we only noticed two hive beetles and didn’t notice anything else out of the ordinary. That beginner beekeepers would notice. Please have a look at the photos of the frames and let me know if you notice anything that we may have overlooked.
My wife just mentioned and she’s right that they didn’t seem to be a lot of dead bees in the hive. Her theory is that most of the bees left the hive not sure when or why but she could be right.
I look forward to your questions or comments thank you again.
