Happy New Year 2014

Today is cold, cold, cold. with snow on the way.  No videos of bees circling the hive on this day, as were from past years.  The bees ate most of the sugar syrup I gave them and now seem to be bundled up with for a long winters nap.

Have been wondering about the bees disappearances.  Could it be from the artificially inseminated queens that are causing this?  The only hive that I have left is a mix of feral bees I caught this spring, which I left all the queens in tact when I mix them in together.  Still not sure how many queens are in there as I refrained from opening the hive last fall.  All the previous hives I had installed new queens and they all flew away in the Jan. thaws.   Later
