Hi Diesel,I have a hive where the bees are dragging out undeveloped bees. Why would they be doing this? Is this a sign that there is something wrong with the colony?
A handful shouldn't be a big worry, yes, they might have been chilled in one spot or something.I did not do any treatments. It was only about a handfull or so but it had me worried when I first noticed. I'm running 3 hives now and that was the only hive that had any issues so far that I can see. I could have been brood chill.
Ok, that's definitely something going on then. Are the pupae kind of dried with chalky white parts? Or just plump fresh looking white pupae with dark eyes?I have seen this before in the past with only a hand full of bees but there is like 20 or 40 of them now and this has me worried.
