Not a good day at the hive.
This morning I noticed a number of drones dead in the front of the hive and the girls apparently attacking all of the boys. Beeing a new beek I don’t know if this is normal (although I have a hunch it is … wait for the punch line).
At lunch I went down to the hive with my phone this time. I got the surprise of my bee-life. 100% not what I expected.
Maybe a bad bee-day for me - and maybee it’s a really bad day for the hive too!
Drones being kicked out
What I really didn’t expect was to see my QUEEN DEAD ON THE GROUND!
Then to make matters worse, I saw a yellow jacket attacking one of the dead drones with a gruesome ending.
So what happened (is happening) and what, if anything, should I be doing.
The Queen is dead - long live the Queen!
