I have a hive my best hive to be exact. It is a double deep hive. The top deep is full of honey mostly little brood the bottom deep has 6-7 frames of brood. The hive has produced over 150lbs of honey so far this year. I have moved it three times around my area to make this honey.
Heres the question, I have noticed them hauling out LIVE full grown bees with DWV. I thought most of the bees with DWV stayed in the hive until they became workers and tried to leave the hive. But, these bees are hauling them out alive. But, if they were being hygenic shouldn't they pull them out of the cells before they are fully grown? These are worker bees also not Drones. The hive still seems very strong. Any ideas on this behavior.
