Has anyone else noticed their drones getting a hard time by the workers?,

one hive in particular seemed to have started eviction today.

Grizzly,if you love your drones,remove the queen,they will look after them well then.(joking of course),but if you need late drones this is a way of securing them

I should be ok, most hives have lots in still, rather annoyingly, but that should help raise my last queen for the year with a bit of luck.

Assuming of course todays gales have not knocked any hives over.
