A dead hive

beehives May 15 1

We have 9 hives at the moment but it looks as though one has died out. It is the one on the left in the photo above. It was a swarm hive from last year but there is very little activity in it now. We will clean it out and use the hive for any new swarms - we are approaching the swarming season.

The other hives seem to be fine and in between the rain recently, there has been lots of activity by the bees.
