A couple weeks ago here in Indiana it was in the upper 70s on the weekend. Did brief inspections of the home yard. Had a hive which had 6 good frames of bees, three plus frames of brood. Pretty satisfied with it.

Got about 70 today and went to check the hives again. This one was almost dead. A pile of dead bees on the bottom board. Some even with pollen on their legs. No queen. Just a handful of bees left.

Took a sample and am going to send them to the lab.

But what are your thoughts?

As you give few clues, such as not saying if it had any honey, maybe it starved?
