    Default wings

    I have had a few B's pulled out of my hives by thier sisters that appear not to have fully developed wings... I'm talkin 5 or 6 that I have seen looking at genetics and a mom that gives birth to tens of thousands of babies would it be unusual to have a few beasted are not quite developed or normal or am I looking at something bigger?

    Deformed Wing Virus, carried by mites.

    Do a mite check, it's getting on time to treat them anyway.

    Im new too, with 2 hives. One went queenless, so I had issues and had to build them up. Had em good, with help from my strong hive, but couldnt resist the boost of a frame. Wish I had now.
