1) The small clump in the bottom middle, is it normal? I've seen a lot of them on the board, but never seen them clump like this.
2) You can see at least one bee bringing in orange pollen. Does anyone have a clue what might be blooming around here for them to bring that in (Central AL). They are bringing in loads of it.
3) I have noticed some SHB in the top most super... been there no more than 8 days, and I'm building a bottom board beetle trap oil pan and have some beetle blasters on the way, but I've notices a strong "honey" smell coming from the hive. Before I found the beetles I just assumed that was normal, but read somewhere on here that beetle infestations can cause fermenting. Any thoughts?
