Hi, I check some hives the other day and i had a few where there were no bees, the queen was dead in the bottom (alone) another one the queen was dead with about 5 dead bees hanging on top of a frame, again no dead bees in the base as there is normally..
Will wasp clean out a hive like that ? or have the bees done a runner ?, the hives had pretty of honey and were not moldy or smelly ??
look forward to your thoughts.
