Re: Formic Pro deadouts
I would be interested in what you "dusted" them with too. What is the brand name of the product you thought was formic acid? Or, are you using the word dusted to mean killed, a la 1930s gangster vernacular? Formic Pro and MAQS can be very hard on the bees if the temps get too high.
I would try to get the bees to clean them up. Dead bees do not store well and tend to get all moldy. Yuck.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
