Yesterday I was checking out my hive and I found a lot of dead drones in front of the entrance. I know that the workers run the drones out in winter, but I found one drone that was 5/8 of an inch long and very chubby.
I have seen this same drone a lot this summer because he is the largest bee in the hive. It is not my queen, since she is still in there. I did take a picture of it, but I don't know how to get it on this forum. Any body have any idea what caused such a large drone?
