There are multiple threats to honey bees. They’ve just recently discovered another one. A tiny fly lays its eggs inside a bees abdomen. The larva grows there until multiple flys emerge alien like killing it’s host.
I just lost the my 3rd of 3 hives last week. Mine showed signs of starvation though. I thought I had left them enough honey last fall and had even suplemented them a couple weeks ago. But I found a dead hive. Nothing more discouraging than a hive full of dead bees. Now i get to start from square one next month.

Is it possible for you to investigate as to the cause of death? This is so sad.

How does this happen?
