MH hive is dead

I checked out the MH hive today. It's dead, there are maybe about 2 dozen bees clustered in side, I did not see a queen, I did not see any eggs/brood at all. There are a few bees going in /out, but they could be robbers. I asked Lynn to cover the entrance up and I'd come back later this week to collect up the hive and clean it up. There are probably 5 full frames of capped honey total in the hive (2 deeps, 1 medium super).

My two spare hives have been cleaned up, freshly painted, and are at Fuzzys just waiting for swarms. I'll clean up the MH hive and leave it and my nuk in MH to try to get a swarm there.

Damn!!!
