Stragglers need help


Hi there, I’ve stumbled through my first year of beekeeping but fallen in love with everything about it. After a few terrible mistakes, I finally lost 95% of my beautiful, gentle colony to some aggressive robber bees in September. Anyway, I have been feeding the few remaining bees ever since (only 200 or so) but it seems futile. There are barely any honey stores at all and there doesn’t seem enough bees to keep each other warm. So, what do I do? If these determined beauties survive can I simply bring in a queen in the spring or another package or what? Is there something to do now? :cry: Looking forward to your reply…
