      David,
      You may be able to collect some of the dead bees and have them analyzed. I believe if you post this on the beesource.com forum, someone will be able to tell you where to send them. A photo won't necessarily tell us much.
      I hope this helps.
      Sherill

      Greetings all. 

      Im going into my third year of beekeeping and I have just experienced my first dead hive. 

      There were only three dead bees remaining in my hive. There was honey and pollen on several of the frames, and there was evidence of brood remaining. Oddly, there were two frames that had the wax scraped off them and left in a pile on the bottom board. Having no experience with this type of thing, Im concerned and confused by this hive. Can anyone offer any ideas or suggestions as to what may have happened here? I have some pictures if that would help in diagnosing the problem(s).

      Regards,
      David Hassinger
