I'm brand new and went to do my queen check today. I tried to brush a clump of bees out of the way and they seemed to actually be stuck together. I saw an actual strand of goo when a bee separated from the clump. It seemed to be like this in both my hives. Also in one hive there were clear jelly-like clumps which I am assuming are from the sugar water feeder leaking. My question is if my feeder (a 1 gallon bucket with a few small holes poked in the lid and then turned upside down over the inner cover hole) is leaking and if that is why the bees are sticky? Or is this normal? In all the videos I watch it seems like the bees brush relatively easy and aren't glued together. I'm wondering if this is harmful to the bees. One note they are building a lot of wax already and they have hardly used any so I am wondering if I should get rid of the feeders all together.
