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

Brian D Bray said; "they can find forage anytime of year in most areas of US."  Sorry Brian I couldn't resist Wink, but you must not travel outside Washington much, as there is actually quite a large section of "Northern" US that certainly does NOT have any available forage, some parts for as long as five months or more.

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