A few dead bees

by Ruhl Bee on 05/24/13

In the rainy and cool weather of this week, it is not unusual to see a few dead bees in front of your hive or on top.  The bees spend this cooler weather catching up on housekeeping. which includes removal of dead bees.  Also, sometimes bees venturing out between rain showers get stuck in rain or small puddle of water on top of your hive.  Once their wings are wet, they have a hard time maneuvering.
