My first Hive is dead, flipped over by someone or something. Really bummed about it.
So I got my first hive this spring, everything went great and I was really enjoying it and looking forward to next season. I checked on my hive just last week and everything looked good.
Last night I went to go show a friend the hive and when we got to it the whole thing had been flipped upside-down somehow. Any bees that were left were dead. It's pretty cold out where we are so I don't have any hope for them having swarmed.
I'm not sure what it could have been. My only two guesses would be that a deer (which we have a lot of around here) got spooked and ran into it or someone intentionally flipped it over but I have to assume it was the deer.
I'm pretty bummed about it. I'm still going to try again next spring but so much progress lost.
