Winter losses do some good.

If you are in Texas, the end of Winter is nigh. I saw the first Dandelion bloom yesterday.  A quick check of the outyard showed lots of activity, but old man winter did cast his shadow, and a nuc had died out. Winter losses are part of beekeeping, and part of the selection cycle to kill off weaker strains.  In the big picture, it is how bees get stronger.
