i have had my first and only bees for about four weeks and it seems everytime i observe a new activety, i get myself into a panic about what im seeing. i read the beekeepers handbook and that is about all i know about bees. on day 5 i observed the first real activity, at first i thought it was great, but then i started thinking that my hive was under attack and getting robbed. a few days later i looked inside for the first time, when i saw those little dropped wax scales on the bottomboard i thought they were mites. last week i saw a little brown beetle walk out of my hive and i thought i had an infestation of small hive beetle, yesterday i saw one bee grab another live bee and fly away with it. it carried it for as far as i could see them and just kept going, why would it do this, i havent read anything about this type of behavior? later, i noticed a dead bee at the entrance, it looked like it was a pupae that died before it was fully matured, it had no wings yet and was very light in color. now im worried that there really could be a problem. i think i might be over reacting but i want to be safe. please advise thanks, kevin :? :?
