Went out to check the hive this am...last night was not really to cold 40 to 45 degrees.
I saw about 8 to 10 dead bees on the front entry of the hive...and one was a little larger than the other and seemed to be yellow colored.
The abdomin was yellow...no triped like the rest...fatter too.
Later I look and they are flying all over the entry area and up to 30 feet.
I took a pick of the yellow one and a video of the swarming.. http://www.flickr.com/photos/8994153...in/photostream
Here is the photo of the yellow one http://www.flickr.com/photos/89941531@N07/ might be both of them here.
I opened the hive last week and looked at Number 8/9/10 frames....number 10 had bees on it just starting to draw comb
Number 8 and 9 had honey capped.
put 10 in 8 place and closed it up as they were getting a little pissed...show ya that one video later.
I put another deep on top as only had that...for them to work on.
Hope someone can help.
