Hi from Maine. I had four hives die ,starved poor prep on my part . I cleaned all the dead bees off and saw white matter like you have in a few spots and it turned out to be crystallized nectar or honey maybe aster honey I've heard it can do that. Sorry about your bees I am getting more this year and will try to do better by them . Brian

I said "most," most doesn't include deserts, made of either sand or rock, or large bodies of water called the Great Lakes.
