Bad news on the bees

honeycomb Mar 17

We have some bad news about our bees. We checked our remaining 3 colonies over the weekend and, as I feared, they were dead. This has badly hit our ability to produce a cash crop with a premium return. We will have to rescue the situation as soon as possible. We have put out a message to beekeeping friends to tell people we are in the market to buy bees in the spring. We have had an offer to crate 4 nucs in June. We have accepted this but will be looking to buywhole hives as well.

Hi Jon, From the photo it seems that your honey boxes do not have frames. Is this correct? You do not have moveable frames?
