My bees are dying! Why?

There are many reasons why bees die all of a sudden.  They might be infested with mites, exposed to pesticides, been affected by disease, starvation, freezing temperatures, or have become over-heated.  If you don’t think it was any of these contributing factors, than something less common may have been the cause. If your bees die, you can always replace them with a new package in the spring and try again.
