Yep, that's oxalis.  Beautiful mound of it!  Contains oxalic acid -- duh!, that's why the name.  Has nice flowers.  Gets better every year.  I like the purple oxalis a lot.

Jim, you are right, but I left it out because I'm lazy.  What are the odds of lots of them being from those particular drones?  I've read that AHB semen may be used before other semen, but I question how that happens.  Lots of questions in beekeeping.  Not as many answers.  Cheers.

There is one other option. It may bee some of the drones that mated your queens were dark and their genes are just showing up in your bees.

DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: Bees walking on the ground

Add a piece of 3/4 insulation board (with the foil one both sides) under the top board. It will do the same thing.
Jim
Jim are you suggesting foil faced so the bees don't chew it?  I would put the foam board on top of the cover and hold it down with a rock that way the foil will be reflecting some sun light.  If you are looking to cool the hive a foil wrap without insulation would be best.

That is what I do with my hives. I use caulking around the edges to keep the bees and ants from gettting under it.

Im seeing more and more forage ferel bees around my house.  I went for a walk the other day to try to find a hive close by but didnt find one.  I have one swarm trap out so far.  I need to bait and put out a few more at my house and a handful at my ranch this weekend.  Hopefully ill catch a swarm soon.  Its been pretty sunny and warm already.  I thought they wouldnt be swarming just yet though..  i guess you never know
