I have dead drones in front of my hive.I opened it up today and they have been drawning comb.Maybe 2 or 3 frames full of honey.Many bees .
Tese bees are the wild ones I got last January.How come they are killing the Drones the are bring in a lot of pollen also.My other two hives died opened the second one today six or seven frames of honey no bees and the queen was on the top of a frame crawling very slow looked thin.

That could be a poisoning. Has there been any spraying around your area that you know of recently? If large numbers of bees all die at once (hundreds) one of the first things I think of is poison. Sad

 sounds to me like you might have losed your queen, you might could combine the hives  with the newspaper method with queen right hives, if you dont have more hive's, you could order a queen if the weather aint to bad,  some more experianced people in here might have other idea's.

Maybe your Queen has sputtered out. She could be a drone layer.

Several things can cause them to just dwindle away.  Queenlessness.  Tracheal mites.  Failing queen.  Sometimes if they are queenless they just drift over to another hive.

Whatever happened to that old maladie mentioned in texts around the turn of the century...not the recent one?  Didn't they call it "spring dwindling"?
