So I get in my hives today to check sugar levels and this hive looked like this.

Is this normal ?
This is what the rest look like My bee where holed up for around 5 weeks or better so there is a lot of bee poop every where .Being only my 4th winter I never seen bee poop like I do this year having 21 hives my play a role.:DIt has been in the 40s the last couple of days.
What's your thoughts.
Thank you .

Hey GLOCK, I have one nuc that looks a lot like the first pic. I'm going to wait and see how they do over the next couple of weeks. Hoping It will clear up on Its own.

I had a deadout that looked a lot like that; all of the droppings were at the top of the hive where the baseball-sized cluster met its end. I'm hoping it was just dysentery, but will test for nosema to see if that might have been the problem.
