Second year Beek first year package installs. I am going on five weeks since installing first two packages. Each hives has 4 full frames of capped brood and appear to be doing well. As with a lot of you I am dealing with the cooler and wet weather. I have noticed the last few days a few dead bees on the ground in front of the hives as well as some crawling on the ground. Not great numbers but enough to catch my eye. Is this normal for package installs? I figure the bees that came with the packages are showing their age.

Thanks.

Thank you Michael, I figured as such. They have stayed in for two day with the cold weather and it's not warming up for another two days.
