By the way the bees are reacting. if they are defensive easly excitable when other hives are open and the are looking to rob then there could be a derth. Put a hive on a scale and see what it reads from week to week.
I have a quick question for anyone. I recently did a cutout, I have some regular looking honey bees and but there are smaller almost black honey bees in there with them. Anyone have any idea what type these might be?
Now I have another question?? Found the girls hauling the queen out dead today 5/26/21. I am guessing she was injured during the cut out from the building. She was alive after four days when I did the first check... Should I order a new Queen or wait and see if they make a new one? Any suggestions would be great ..
