Checked out the MH hive yesterday, it's not quite dead. There are about 50 bees in it still living and I saw the queen yesterday. I did not dig into the hive much to look for brood. I want to leave them alone for a bit. If I catch a swarm I'll drop it on top.
I made some fondant patties for them (5:1 sugar:water). I poured it into cup cake wrappers, let it harder, peeled off the paper, and put it on the top of the frames. They seemed to go after them, I'll check and see how if they are eaten next weekend.
