I had what I believe were sugar ants, the same ones that I have seen in my kitchen, on the hive legs and even going in and out of the hive entrance. I saw this for two days, but as of day three they are gone. Very strange as I did nothing. Maybe the bees formed and eviction squad and pushed them out. I’ll keep checking each day, but for now, the problem has fixed itself. I love it when that happens.
Today is a beautiful summer morning, and I can see workers departing for the flowers ever few seconds and returning with orange pollen.
