Questions

Hello,

I'm a relatively inexperienced beekeeper in the cold Midwest; I used to do it as a child but in a different climate, so overwintering is totally new. I have a hive which seems to still be alive based on knocking and listening, but I'm concerned about the number of dead bees on the bottom, deep and thick right behind the entrance, and I'm wondering if it's a bad sign that the living ones haven't been able to carry them out on warmer days.

Tomorrow is supposed to be a very worm day, around 60 degrees F, and I'm wondering if I should open the hive up and look around. Does that make sense, or will I just be further stressing them if they are weakened and it gets chillier again soon?

Thanks for input

Arthur
