Hi,

I have a new hive that is quite weak, and I see them bringing out mummies everynow and then. I put some links up to pictures of the brood http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,43665.msg377968.html#msg377968

Any experienced eyes feel they could diagnose it? No foul smells and no stringiness from the cells.

Thanks

Not enough bees and chiled brood

Thanks Edward. Taking what I hope are the appropriate measures

* Moving to 5 frame nuc
* Protein cakes
* Re-queening (once I see how the first two go)

Cheers.

This year I had one colony out of 15 in the same conditions with only one exhibiting a lot of chalkbrood.  I gotta vote for requeening when that happens even though the heat of summer will normally end the outbreak.
