I posted this in the general also.
went into the hive yesterday and it had a sour smell so I have done some research and i am going to go back in a see if this is what I have. Can and does it spread to other hives? i was thinking about moving the hive to another location because the darn birds were eating the crap out of them this morning. This is a new package that swarmed so then I bought a nuc to get it going again so I am realy disapointed as we have a few bucks invested now and I am afraid it's current location is hopeless.
i will try and get some pictures of what we have this weekend. i don't want to move the hive to my other location, where hives are doing wonderful, if this crap will spread to them. but I am sick of seeing the birds eat them
