I think I saw a couple with wings separated making a k. It was right after a good rain near evening and was cloudy so maybe with the bad light I did not see the separation like I should have. I never noticed this before but it was very obvious something was different about wings on collapsed colony. Thankfully I did not seen it in my main yard. I was told from the people I got my bees from that they had not had a problem with tracheal mites for years now and have not needed to treat for it. I was hoping I would not have a tracheal mite problem but it appears I may.
The bees in collapsed colony look stubby like this but there wings looked like the one on left but uniform, not frayed or missing. Last time I looked at them they did not look like this as I remember. Queen is missing now and obviously dead.
Oh, a link to pic Im referring to would helphttp://www.flickr.com/photos/max_westby/4068531583/#
I may have been a bit paranoid though and mistaken this wing position in other colonys I looked at.http://www.flickr.com/photos/max_westby/4567110893/#
Most had there wings in tight in other colonies I looked at. I will have to look again and take video and post it so hopefully someone can give me a definitive answer.
Thanks for response. Ill get video as soon as I can.
