I'm finding quite a few bees like the image posted above. Is this just something they are bringing in, like pollen, or something more dire?
Sorry the images are blurry.
journaling the growth of a (mite) treatment free apiary started in 2010. 20+/- hives
we have been seeing it for the last two weeks in S.E. Wisconsin also. White pollen stripe. Queen Anne's lace, and wild cucumber are blooming. I will try to look at the pollen unde a microscope when it gets cold.
Yes, and "Touch me not" is also blooming. I will get a sample of that to compare also.
