    Default What am I seeing?

    What am I seeing when I look at a cell of pollen in the hive and I see what looks like coarse crystals of salt on top of the pollen?

    There is a good chance you are seeing shreds of capping wax. I believe the dearth has started in your area too and the bees are possibly getting into their stores. Could also be sugar crystals. Pictures help.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
