I went into my strongest, and only overwintered hive today. It seemed quiet despite warm sunny conditions. There was 2 near full supers (I have taken 2 off so far as well), but when I got to the top brood box capped brood was spotty and there were a number of dead pupae in cells. I pulled some out with forceps; some were pretty soupy. I'm afraid I'm on a one way ticket ride to disaster. The photos show cells as well as some brood I pulled out. Any advice? EFB? Other? Thought I was having a good year with 2 new hives and a successful split (from this hive). I only looked at this and the split today - figured I didn't want to go into the other 2 hives before cleaning up.
