I went out to the hive today and noticed that there was honey oozing out of the bottom entrance and bees that were caked in the sweet stuff. I scraped it clean but it was too cold to open up the hive. This doesn't seem normal to me, and I mean it wasn't absolutely running out, it was just a layer on the entrance, but is there anyone who has experienced this?
Did you taste the sticky stuff? I've had a few hives leach sap from the woodenware, looks like honey too. If in fact honey, something had to have gotten in and busted comb, as mentioned.
