Well it is now official-our bees are dead. We opened the hive and saw lots of dead bees-some were clustered as they should be in the winter-and some were doing tasks and frozen in time. We don't have an answer but can only clean up and carry on. We even identified the dead queen-with the white dot. I know they are just insects but we have grown to respect these hard working beings. It was especially sad to see the baby bees--frozen in death while still in their cells.
