I posted a little while back about a bunch of dead bees on my SBB, with a top entrance. I cleaned it out, and all seemed ok. Brood is increasing, queen is laying- eggs are visible.
Three days ago I addeda top mount pollen trap.
today I looked in and there are some more dead bees. Not a layer, but a handful. Shouldn't they be carrying out their dead?

If you do not have any bottom entrance, even a 3/8 inch hole, they are not going to carry dead bees or any trash up and out. A few deaths is inevitable in any healthy hive. Who knows how many 'on the job fatalities" there are in a hive.
