I observed a bee with a white wet looking string hanging from her abdomen. She was flying and walking fine. Did she just sting something? Is it a weird poop? Poisoning? I found about 6 dead bees on their porch this morning with tongues sticking out, which I think means poisoning.

Probably just stung something. They live a while afterwards.

Check around the hive. Are there masses of dead or dopey bees? I saw a bit of that this year, maybe a hundred bees that looked poisoned. The hive seemed fine afterwards.
