bad mistake…

We are grateful you are here

bad mistake…

Accidentally left the entrance to my hive blocked for at least 5 days. "Bearding" activity increased in this time, but they started bearding last week so it didn't come up as a red flag to me. The massive beard seemed to be getting progressively smaller each day…

I realized what happened today and unblocked the entrance. A cake of dead bees were right behind the block. And there are ~ 30 dead bees on the ground.

Has anyone done or heard of something similar? I have yet to inspect because I'm just giving them their space… there was also a decent amount of attempted robbing last week, but I considered this colony strong enough to fend for themselves. Not sure if I have ruined their chances or doomed them
