i cannot see any ants but think that's my problem, was unable to open hive as raining cats and dogs and cool last visit. I've been unwell and unable to do my usual fortnightly visits. I'm getting crumbled up wax out the front of the hive and one hive a friend has told me is now dead. i will be inspecting them this weekend. I could not see any ants at all, but it's in termite country and there are a few big 'bulk ant' nests around.
would this be ants or something else ??
