Had you by any chance cut the grass recently near the hives?

If you can, take some pictures and send them to one of the moderators like Robo, and he can post them, so we can get a better look.

After you get more posts under your belt you will be able to post pictures.

I don't know if thrips would affect bees. Does anyone know?

Thrips won't bother the bees.
