Yep, it is dead. Totally. I had noticed that there were not as many bees coming and going on the few warmish days that we have been having, but I blamed it on it's being in a more exposed location. Not! I opened it up to remove the apistan strips, and it is DEAD! And, it had 5 MICE inside!!!!! GRRRR...... The honey was all gone but there was still pollen present. There were no dead bees: the mice had probably eaten them. GRRrr.... I am now worried about the other 2 hives in my yard, which have always been weaker. I will get into them as soon as we get another mildish day. It is a LOUSY time of year to be tearing apart hives!
