Signs of life in the hive

The weather has finally started to get warm (50's) so today when I checked on the hive I found several dead bodies outside the hive, so I tilted the hive back to check to see if there were many dead on the floor, one bee came out to see what the fuss was all about.  Will have to supplement their food with some fondant to get them through to real spring.

On another note, I checked my pollen patty box to give some away, and found it full of frass.  Looks very similar to powder post beetle residue.  Maybe it is, who knows.  Will have to clean very well before I put some in the hive.  Can't wait for spring to get here, We've had enough snow and cold for this year.
