Don’t Breed From Dead Hives

Here is a photo of a piece of top bar comb showing what was left of the cluster that died out.  The bees shown here are dead.  They were on both sides of the comb,  and there were a lot of dead bees on the bottom. There was honey to the rear of the brood nest, and even on the other end of this same comb, but the bees didn’t move to it.  It’s too bad this happened, but we don’t want to breed bees that can’t make it through the winter.
