Question for the experts.
I found larvae (approx. 4 larvae hanging around in my hive) it was either in uncapped wax or on top of the frames in the burr comb that was starting to be built. It looks like bee larvae but I don't know because one of the larvae was double the size of a bee...
Hoping this isn't AFB! I've got some tests coming in but it will be a week.
The rope matchstick test was not consistent and rarely yielded a short rope.
Some of the larvae are desiccated in the back of the comb (where they are when healthy) in a moon shape
Some are on the floor of the comb...
I am new to this forum and am looking to identify this type of bee that has decided to create a nest underneath my cedar clapboard siding (specifically where it meets the foundation of my home). Anyway, I am looking to see what kind of bee this is to safely remove it.
Any help will be...
