Androscoggin Beekeepers Club Winter Hive Losses 2014-2015

The numbers for ABC members’ hives surviving the winter of 2014-2015 have been tabulated.  Thanks to everyone who participated by sending their hive information.  We had a pretty solid number of hives to track through the winter and, as many would have guessed, our losses were pretty high.

With 84 live hives going into the winter, only 42 (i.e. 50%) survived until early spring.
