Why did my bees die this winter?

This is a great video showing very common causes of bees not making it through the winter in southern Idaho. Many people think that starvation, lack of insulation, or moisture in the hive are the main causes. Kirk shows you that these are usually symptoms of a bigger problem, varroa mites. He walks you through how to identify some of the signs of varroa infestation in a dead hive and what happened over the course of the winter. If your bees didn’t make it, you might want to check out our post on how to get a dead out ready for new bees!
