Re: Why are my bees flying all over the ground?
regarding the bees all over the ground: if it's moist ground the bees may be taking up minerals/moisture they need. I'm assuming they are not piled up in a mass but on the ground in a 1 bee layer. I've seen them all over the wet mud on the farm especially in the spring. Maybe
you can get down low and see if they are sucking up moisture, you'll see their tongues extended into the wetness. Make sure you have some kind of
water source nearby for the bees.
as far as mites: I suggest you start a new thread asking about suggested treatment plans, it may get lost in this thread.
