    Default Are these remnants of dead brood?

    Saw a pile of this on the bottom board of my friends parent colony after a split.

    There were some frames of dead brood inside and since I'm a newbie thought I'd ask.
    Maybe this is what hygienic behaviour looks like.

    thanks,
    Allen

    It looks like chalkbrood or stonebrood.
    Check Michael Bush's website and it has a description.

    I just researched both and it looks like chalkbrood.
    Thank you.
