First year beek here. I have an odor coming from the hive. I did a quick inspection tonight, but I don't see an infestation of hive beetles. It was very hot today, 97 and humid. The bees are bearding and there are a ton hanging out on the top of the inner cover.
Hive is two boxes, a struggle to get to this point. The bottom box is mostly brood frames and they are starting to store honey in the top box. Being a first year, I don't have any spare frames, but I also don't see any issues with the frames that are in there.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? I've read SHB infestation or goldenrod....
Thanks in advance.
