I have another new nuc this year.
The beehive entrance and the inside floor is littered with what looks like little dried up beetles about 1/2 the size of a bee. They are carried out by the bees and dumped on the entrance step.
a) What are they?
b)Is this a problem?
The nuc is also a little slow to grow.
I appreciate any help here
You have hive beatles and that is a big problem. You need to contact your extension agent and ask if there are other beekeepers around that can tell you what meds to put in the hive to get ride of the HBs. Not good at all. LIZ
