I got my first experience with the damage a mouse can cause on a colony of bees this year, It was a lesson I won't soon forget! A local beekeeper passed away recently and the family asked Jeff to sell off his excess equipment and remove a couple remaining hives of bees that had not been touched since last October. First the bees were relocated because family members said they were allergic. Second we were very busy with packages, nucs, removals and swarms. Inspection of those hives would have to wait.
There are many things that are important to do early in the spring. In an earlier article Preparing For Winter 101 we discussed activities and changes we make to our hives to help them survive the winter. One of those activities is to add a winter rim and that article included a reminder not to leave on your winter rim to long.
