Hello from Oregon
« on: June 08, 2012, 11:50:28 AM »

Hello from Oregon, I am new to bee keeping and kind of inherited a hive from my father-in-l​aw. last night when I got home from work I noticed hundreds of dead bees outside the hive. What have I done?

Welcome to the forum.   And did you do anything with the bees?    They do loose a lot of bees to death and clean them out of the hive.

where in oregon are you....you can put your location in your profile so we don't have to keep asking...

where you are might give a clue to the issue.  they might have been on/around something that was spryed, or gotten into some dust.  if it only happens the once, they will probably recover.  h


have you looked inside to see what's going on?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
