A couple of seasons ago I saw a worker die on top of a white painted telescopic cover, the bee had not even stopped moving when off jumped 2 mites just like rats off a sinking ship. Now I often wonder about samples of dead bees sent off to labs for analysis and results show mite numbers, are these stupid mites or what. Perhaps in the winter bees could starve freeze and then the mites would die on them.
