    Default White Drone?

    Does anyone have any idea why this drone has a white thorax?

    From what I can see in the pics it looks like DWV - the drone may be diseased.
    are the wings deformed?

    DWV, likely high mite load in your hive.

    Thanks for the input! The wings were definitely deformed. I will likely do a mite count and see what I find.
