Bees ascended (first year bee keeper)
So I’m pretty sure my bees ascended, finally had some nice days so I went to check after the long winter. My mite levels were fine when I checked before winter, lots of honey. Huge hive.
Honestly I think I was checking on them to much, there were some signs but I thought they were breading. They’d all come out and be all over the hive but then they go back in.
They weren’t any bees, and very few dead bees. There are 3 deeps with full honey and I’m wondering what I should do with it.
Should I get new bees or leave it and see if I can catch a swarm?
