Its getting warmer here in Tennessee, and on nice sunny days I am seeing activity around my hive. The main thing I am noticing is many dead bees outside the entrance of the hive. To some this may seem very alarming but its actually just part of the hive and the life cycle of the bee. During the winter cold months when bees cannot leave the hive some of the bees die and are left in the bottom of the hive, on warm days fellow bees carry out their dead sisters and also go for a cleansing run.
