Today while inspecting my two new hives in the yard.... I noticed something odd infront of one of them:
Three small dried pieces of Feces that is entirely made up of digested bees...!
Two weeks ago I saw an Opossum in my yeard and I made a lot of noises to scare it away and it did. I thought it was the end of it. Well my theory is
this animal has been coming up at night scrashing the landing board and when my guard bees come out to investigate he eats them! I have a mouse guard on both hives and we have no skunks in our area.
I do not know what to do.... Any idea and is this threat serious to warrant an intervension?
