I live in Oakland, CA and am a new beekeeper. We are in the middle of a severe drought and I came home from vacation to observe some interesting hive behavior. I found five or six drones that had been expelled from the hive. Later that evening I found six pupae that had been expelled, too. Here is a short video I made. The first part shows bees in orientation fight. The other parts are about drone expulsion.
