Better Luck Next Time

I could get used to this weather and have been enjoying it immensely, that's for sure! I was able to get this shot of my neighbors beautiful horse.

On another note, the warm weather also gave me a chance to open up my hive and see how bad my bee situation was. Well, I suppose I'll have to get a swarm in the spring to replace my hive full of dead bees. There were a handful that were still alive, but they'll probably be gone in a couple weeks. Pictures to follow.

Dead bees
A few survivors
Wax Moth Larvae, only one I saw though
Varroa Mite
Taking the combs out to put in the freezer to kill the wax moth larvae. I'll put them back in the hive come spring.
