    poor guys,they can't help it they aren't good for much.i checked out a hive the other day and discovered a solitary drone who seemed quite comfortable and unmolested by the workers,must have been his charisma.

    It has been shown that % of drones are not tossed out. I believe Steve Taber wrote this info a few years back in ABJ.

    I saw four drones on my hive entrance last night. They looked like they were standing guard or fanning. Upon closer inspection, I found they were all dead in their places.
    It was pretty cold last night. Maybe they froze because they weren't allowed back in.
