I noticed today on one of the hive alighting boards a dead wasp! It looked too small to be a queen and alongside it was wax debris. I am guessing the bees have been buzy Spring cleaning and this corpse is a vanquished foe from last autumn. Either way at least it was dead ! That sounds horrible but necessary!
