Found this poor bee struggling in the grass near the hive
Looks like physical damage to me, not viral. Poor thing, but hopefully it doesn’t hurt too much.
what would do something like that? Queen excluder? I have no clue is the only reason I am asking?
I don’t have a QE in use so I’m guessing it’s just from a LOT of flying…
An old forager with worn out wings from flying. Bees do not heal. They just wear out.
Oh SO SAD
