Lost our hive – what now?
Small Hive Beetle totally took over, I’m not even hearing buzzing from the hive. I can smell that the honey is spoiled. I’ve been pregnant and saw the swarm several weeks ago, but just haven’t been on top of it. We’ve had 4 successful years and I think it’s time to take a break. Do I literally burn everything? What can we save? I’m not sure how to do clean-up.
