Ok, so I had a look inside, Its humming, I lost count at about 1 million, 435 thousand bees..😕. They all look very healthy with a few frames of solid brood in the bottom box. The top box has five frames of honey, three in the process of being loaded but uncapped. The other frames in the top box are loaded with bees drawing out I presume. I'm assuming the dead young ones are isolated. I checked for AFB in the capped brood cells and they were clear.
Anyway and strangely several bees managed to get under my hood and I was stung several times but managed to reassemble both boxes. Unfortunately I went into anaphylactic shock and was ambulanced to Auckland hospital for overnight. Several adrenaline shots and two drips later I have been warned by the doctors that I am extremely allergic and cannot get any more stings.
Sadly, the fun police have got me and I need to quit the beekeeping which is devastating. Therefore I have a two high hive in central Auckland humming with bees and will be open to offers. I would be happy for this to go to a hobby guy in Auckland who loves bees. You must pack it and pick this up and I cannot help unfortunately at the risk of more stings. I would consider any offer, real cheap if you take it away.
