Re: dead bees in front of entrance
Any insights and thoughts from experienced beekeepers as to why bees are trying to fly when too cold?
Are they older foragers still heading out for pollen/nectar?
Are they being helped out of the hive as they are of little value over winter, similar to drone expulsion? Or do they leave on their own accord for betterment of the hive?
Hive is too warm inside and bees think flying is still on?
