I'm a newbee and saw a large black ant carry a tiny bee (could see the shape) larvae out of the hive. Honeybees didn't react. I could not stay long enough to watch for more ants doing this. Is this normal? Part of a plan to get rid of diseased larvae or should I watch for some ill effects by ants stealing anything else?
All other aspects of the hive seem normal for this time of year in Michigan.
Thanks for any advice!
