Robbed Bee Hive

    Just posted a video from trying to save a robbed hive. I explain the details in the video, including why it’s my fault that it happened. The video is a bit hurried, but I was working under the pressure of a sinking sun and the fact that if the hives are open too long this time of year it can encourage even more robbing behavior. For those interested in bee-keeping, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks.

    Thanks for bringing us along on your journey 🙂 Newbies baffle xperts lots of times, lol, I wish you the best. I would personally have just gone ahead and split the robbed hive, but I’d love to see how yours do!

    I suspect that may be right, especially in hindsight since it has turned cold rapidly here. However my bed is made and I’m going to lie in it now😀
