We left the hive separate from Honey 1 and not in the Shed. We recently did our DECA course and are now more aware than ever of the need for good hygiene practices where the hives are concerned.
The comb has a lot of pollen which is starting to what looks like fermenting.
There is this white mould appearing.
A “mummified bee”….
this one shows another “mummy” and these mummies also had (dead) varroa mites.
I uncapped this one and foundwhite mould-more symptoms of what could be chalkbrood.
I will add some more during the week as its getting late !
