Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
Anyone else experiencing high bee losses so far this fall/winter? I am down to three hives from the seven I closed up in October from two different bee yards. All the same, full stores, no bees left except the queen, a few nurse bees and capped brood. Such a total bummer! All strong going into winter, or so I thought.
Same with one of my 4, all bees gone in late November. 2 others don't seem to have any activity on the warm afternoons, so they may be gone as well. They were strong hives with lots of honey stored.
