Increasing numbers of dead brood at the entrance of our hive.

We are grateful you are here

Increasing numbers of dead brood at the entrance of our hive.

These are not adult bees and most are not fully formed. I just did an inspection and I saw eggs, larvae, and our queen.

We have a 10 frame deep brood box and a 7 frame deep super. The brood box is pretty much full of honey, pollen, and brood. I would say the super is 40% full.

I’ve read mixed things on the larvae and young bees being carried out…some say it’s a normal for space and others say it’s because my bees are very hygienic and can sense varroa/infested larvae.

Has anyone seen/dealt with this?
