Its definitely verroa mites... but why so many bees walking around? http://entnemdept.ifas.ufl.edu/afbee/...

I have a FB site: http://www.facebook.com/Japanbeekeeping I also started a playlist for my bee journal http://j.mp/JPbeekeepingJournal

I am having a lot of bees dead outside my hive and wandering what going on... they are rolling... pesticides? Early CCD?

--- this was sent to me and wanted to post it... I have no beekeepers here helping so I am learning by doing... I really appreciate your help.

From watching your video "my bees are dying.
1) if u just put those bees into that new hive box u should give them some more time to adjust before going through every frame
2) it looked to me as if this hive was queen-less or it had an unmated queen
3) you should not move the frames from their original position for the reason of trying to get them to move up in the hive box, the hive is not strong at this point and and moving them will weaken it more
4) the bees cluster in the hive to regulate temp and humidity every time you go into the hive that far it takes 4 - 6 hours for them to re balance the temp and humidity
5) I applaud what you are doing there is just a learning curve that u will go through to become one with the bee,
it is a spectacular journey, un to which we are always learning
6) check out more of what I am trying to do at
