Pests affecting Bees
We have a small box shaped hive in our garden. Last year we had some bees in our hive. We loved seeing them buzzing around.
One very sad day we opened the hive and the bees were all dead. The appeared to have been destroyed by some white maggots with red heads.
Does anyone have any idea what these maggots could be and how we can stop this happening again?
We have just found some new bees in our hive this year and do not want a repeat of 2012's massacre!
