Are dead bees around the hive normal? The hive is pretty active...I have seen a bunch Of bees arriving with pollen on their legs coming into the hive...however I am noticing half dead and dead bees on the ground around the hive...This is the first full day they have been in the hive. Is this normal?

I don't have much experience but if your bees were in transit before you hived them some will have died and house cleaning crew will carry them out. I have a few dead bees around the hives and in early fall there are lots.

normal. Pollen is a (good)sign they are feeding larvae.
