    Default Bee parts on hive

    I was out checking my hives yesterday and noticed that all of them have pieces and parts of bees on top of them. I talked to a friend today, and they are having the same issue.

    Seen assassin bugs leave carcasses like that

    Look up scarlet tanager. Beekeepers in my area are seeing a lot of them this year. Probably not eating enough to hurt unless they get a queen on her mating flight.https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/...carlet-tanager

    well the obvious is something is dinning on your bugs.
    A wood land shrew or at times a mouse.
    if you notice low bee volume then they could be bringing friends.

    Skunks eat bees but do not leave parts on top.

    Could sit near there early or late in the day.

    if bothered every nite the bees can get pissy.
