    I have been keeping bees for two years. Everything was going well until this past December. I checked the hive and there were no bees. No dead ones around the hive either. It looked like some were just emerging from the cell and died while trying. I have read I need to start over with the frames. Is this true? Is it ok to harvest the rest of the honey in the hive? Thanks for any help!

    The honey should be fine as long as you didn’t use treatments or feed sugar.

    As to reusing the comb for new bees…. THat would depend on what killed the old colony. Personally I have reused comb from failed colonies many time with no problem.
