Very, Very Sad News

After being attacked and fighting the agressive invading bees,
thousands of my bees are now dead, or dying.
The hives  that were full of honey and pollen are empty just last week,
 are now empty.
 Juts a few frames of caped brood remain.. and one frame of capped honey
 and some half frames of pollen and uncapped honey..
 Thousands of  dead bees were all on the bottom of the hives,
 and of course some outside, along with yellow jackets.
 even with a thimble sized opening...
It happened so quickly.
I cleaned and downsized the hives and left the bees with some feed to help them recover.
 I will check for the queens tomorrow to see if they survived.
