My Hive is Dieing - Help!

Hello from Omar

We are still trying to learn how to work this sight so here we go.

We started to learn from a freind who had just started beekeeping and an accidental hive that was built under our moble home in Central Fl.  My freind had bought some used equipment. We were so excited when we successfully got a hive from a bee removal job. Then the rain fell a few weeks later. When we check the hive it was a mess and hive beetles and wax moth infested the now empty hive. After investigating I discover that the lid had small hole which left the water into the hive and destroted it . I know it is different from what happened to you but now you know something eles that can go wrong. So what do we do. Learn grow and decome a master beekeeper one day. 

This happened to us last year and I've invested alot in knowlage since then. I have one little hive we overwiner successfully, they have even grown. So now in central florida we are getting into the citus bloom. Let's see what happens.
