As you’ll remember, a couple weeks ago I shared with you the sad tale of the disappearance of my colony of honeybees from my backyard top bar hive. Like some frightening tale of colony collapse disorder, one day the girls were there, the next they were gone. The colony was a strong one without any of the usual honeybee woes (nosema, chalkbrood, varroa mite, etc.) and they were pretty mellow ladies, so it was sad to see they hadn’t liked where they were living. I mean they could have at least said goodbye or left a note.
