Jen,

I’m glad you recognized your symptoms and are still around to keep us company on the forum.

How many frames of bees in each hive?  you may be able to get a good queen in each of them and add a frame of larva in different stages from your strong hives and they should have time to be built up for winter.  Did you split these off and let them make a queen?

That tank would have a cooling system.  Wouldn't you want the opposite for holding honey?

I bet you can use a hot water tank in place of the refrigerant and make it heat.  Agitator wouldnt be needed.  But man you would need a lot of hives to pay for the space it takes up

Hi Lee, two weeks ago I put all full frames of honey in each of them. But we are in a dearth right now so sugar syrup is being used as well.

Wman, as of last December, I am now a stented woman, 61 yrs. I was getting some of these symptoms in the vid. Fortunately I was schooled on heart attack symptoms for women a few years back. And also fortunate, I got to the doc before the heart attack took it's revenge. Three arteries blocked. Genetic for me, both mom and dad had heart attacks. I'm a plaque builder. Love this vid, and put it onto my facebook page. Thanks!

...I'm not against banging all the bees out onto the lawn and let them find new hives to live in...
Not a bad idea, it's simpler and has a better upside than risking the bees in all three NUCs going 'laying worker.'

Yet, if you insisted on combining them, don't combine all three at once. Combine two, wait a few days and combine the third.  You are feeding them, right?
