    Default Bees in the box

    I checked two traps close to me and found a large amount of drones. These two trap outs the bees found a new way to get back into the original hive. I re-foamed and hope this will take care of the problem. The bees in the box seemed a little lathargic. Any ideas what is going on. Are they starving? No one has sprayed them . The curious thing is the large amount of drones.

    I would think that it was a small swarm that the queen didn't make it and now you have a laying worker. Or the queen was old and got kicked out because of no sperm and so the only thing she can make now is drones. Always an old queen that gets kicked out.
