When my friend showed me this pic, I didn't think she had a problem and maybe it was sugar that had crystallized. When we went to do a full inspection today, I found it was everywhere and so was Brown poop. As we were scraping some out, the liquid was very runny, and she said it smelled fermented. Is that what this is? We pulled and scraped this stuff out of 2 deeps and no bees were in it in the hive or on the scrap pile.
We left queen and remaining small cluster of bees in the super, in a clean box, with another shallow of drawn comb from last year. Anything that had this white stuff we trashed...but what is it?
I am thinking her syrup was runny? She caramelized her sugar blocks? Her syrup was old?
