Just did my first inspection (day 9) on one of my hives. Everything looked good(no cross comb). I saw the queen and some larvae. I was curious. Is this an excessive amount of dead bees in the bottom of the hive? The very bottom is 8 inches across. and 14.5 inches deep. They have only taken the comb to the bottom of the frame which is 6.5 inches from the topbar. I expect them to extend further down within the next two weeks.
