    Yes, but what I am seeing is a lot of dead bees. Are these from just a few days or is this an accumilation of dead bees from quite a while?

    If those are from just a day or two I would think they got into some poison somewhere.

    That does look like way more bees than just a few days would normally produce.
    I have one hive that drags 'em out way far away, and I hardly see them in front of that one. I call my other hive the "lazy" one, because the ladies kind of drop them all right in front of the hive.
