    matt, i tried to find a good picture of mite feces for you but i couldn't.

    i would describe it as little light flakes of 'dandruff' that you see exclusively on the walls of the darkly colored brood cells.

    if there's not a lot of that in there, i place my bet on queen failure, but nosema ceranae comes in a close second.

    If it ever stops raining I will make my way back out and look at the comb more closely. I think I'm likely looking at a mixture of issues, queen failure on some and mites on others or combination of both.

    understood matt. if you have freezer space i would recommend putting that comb in the freezer until you get bees on it.
