and I don't know where to go from here. Was checking syrup and noticed a mess at entrance. Pulled out reducer and seen a heck of a mess. It was fairly cold and I didn't get very intrusive....just changed out bottom board and it was covered with larvae,cappings,dead beetles and sick bees. I took pics, but could not upload. About a week ago, I did have a feeder that cracked and let syrup flow thru the hive...figured the bees would clean up what didn't run out entrance. I have 4 hives at this location and want to salvage what I can and keep from spreading to other hives. This colony is strong and I was planning on splitting mid April and making nucs, but don't know what to do now Noticed some beetles last fall and had beetle blasters in each hive. Other bee yard with 5 hives is beetle free....so far.
