Here in my part of the world temperatures have drop to max 57-58 F during the day and 45-47 at night for a week or so. Goldenrod and Joe pye weed are still in bloom. It is a bit colder than what we are use to for this time.

So I went to check my hives this morning and saw several drone pupae att the front of the 4 hives. I know that when season is ending, drones get kicked out of the hives by the bees, but I didn't know that they were taking out drone pupae as well. Is it common or is it a sign that I may have a problem ?

Forecast for the next 5 days: sunny but only 58-60 max. I am beginning to think that I will give my winter feeding earlier ...
