Hive dying

Hive dying

One of my hives is dying and I'm struggling with why. I thought maybe it's varroa because the telltale signs are there: stunted bodies, mites on the frames next to dead bees…But several also have their tongues sticking out. One that was pulled out of the hive today was dying with her tongue out. Is the only reason for this contamination? Or has anyone else seen this from mites? I have 5 other hives, and am seeing some mite death, but none are dying off to the degree this one is. I fed 3 hives (including this one) the same sugar water, so I would think if there was a contaminant in that I would be seeing signs of that in my other hives. I appreciate any constructive input anyone might have!
