I caught a swarm a few weeks ago, they have a queen, and she lays were she can. So here is my confusion. The bees are apparently in wax production mode, but they are not using their wax to build comb, they are letting it fall to the floor? the floor is at least 3/4 of an inch thick if not more. They have made very little comb for the time they have been there so what do you experts think about this one. Are they genetically challenged, or is this some sort of cleansing process? My first guess would be something wrong genetically, and there is no point in trying to keep them as they will never be able to make stores, and would not survive on their own anyway.
