    Re: What kind of bee is this?!?!

    Re: dead drones

    Unless the hive is undergoing supercedure or getting ready to swarm (for who knows what reason), some hives will probably be kicking out adult drones as well as pulling drone brood. I checked ten of...

    Dr Eric Mussen at UC Davis did some studies on robbing and robbing screens in 2010, I believe. His conclusions were that even though the robbers may come from a hive with a robbing screen, they tend...
