While inspecting my hive I noticed this unusual "construction" if you will. Normally I see 1-2 small hive beetles from time to time and this time they were in this... thing. It's almost as if the bees are building a place FOR them. I don't get it. :scratch: I poked at it and a hive beetle ran out and one of the bees quickly snatched it, wrestled with it, picked it up and flew off with it in to the blueberry field. I killed the other one. The wax isn't fresh either, it's almost like propolis mixed with old dirty wax. I have to ask, has anyone seen anything like this?
