    Default Flies are all over my bees nest.

    Bees are going crazy and dropping dead, while there are flies casually walking on the outside of the nest, can someone please explain this?

    Bees dropping dead is a symptom of poisoning.

    Sounds like you need to open the lid and have a look inside. Then let us know what you see.

    Poisoned bees, flies attracted by rotting bees?

    Just a guess cos not really enough info given.
    44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
