    A few weeks ago Ive seen a few light gray bees in my OB hive. They are alive and move around normally for what I can see. Now I see the bees carrying out what looks like these bees and they look dead.

    Any one else notice anything like this??

    Are you sure that you are not looking at the fuzzy light colored hatchlings?

    I cant say that they arent fuzzy hachlings, but they dont look at all like any other type bee in the hive. They look smaller too.

    Also noticed that the bees have pulled out some white brood and discarded them.

    I havent heard of anything like a very light colored gray bee.
