    Check the empty cells on the brood frames. Do you see what looks like some white flecks scattered around on the cell walls?[/QUOTE]. Didn’t see anything like that. I will look again

    That’s what I thought. Very odd. I have other hives about 3 miles from them and there all fine.

    I was looking at the dead out in the brood chamber and noticed a lot of eggs and dead larva.

    Re: Bee's Gone

    Alcohol wash. And I don’t use chemicals for mites. Done a lot of washes and there weren’t a lot. What would you do with the comb with pollen in it? Does it spoil?

    Combine

    Temperatures around here are low 60’s. Is that to cold to do a newspaper combine? Not much bee activity around the hives.
