New beekeeper here, just started 2 packages in late May. While watching the bees come and go over the last couple days I've noticed 3-5 dead bees with their tongues sticking out on/around the landing board. Is this something I should be concerned about?

If they have stores, then probably nothing to worry about. If there are DOZENS of dead bees outside the hive, then I might want be concerned.

Check the inside, pesticides high enough to wipe the hive out will show dead inside as well. At least in mine it did.

No dead inside. Guess I'll keep an eye on it but for now everyone's acting relatively normal
