http://scientificbeekeeping.com/one normally does not find dead bees in hives that have died from parasites, including viruses.
There have been several topics on dead outs usually from beginners wanting to know why there bees died. The common reason from most people posting is varroa mites.
I was lead to Randy Olivers site from a discussion on another topic but I came across this statement that Randy made and now I am wondering. How sick does a bee have to get before it decides to fly away from the hive and die? Do you think that this statement that Randy made is correct and a hive full of dead bees is more likely starvation than mites?
