Out of nosiness this afternoon I slid the bottom white board from under the hive, and was surprised to see honey on it (maybe 2" x 2" area). Why would that be? It makes me nervous. I have begun to see dead bees all around the entrance to the hive, maybe 100, but I'm hoping those are just normal December die-off.
I have a quilt box on top of the hive and opened it up and ran my hand through it, it's dry, so I don't believe there's any condensation dripping in the hive.
I flipped the board over and slid it back in.
