I went through both my hives today they seem to be thriving but I noticed a number of , dbees with a white stripe on their thorax in both, more in one than the other. They weren't there last week. Is this a problem?
I am a new beek and this is my first post so forgive me if this is rather obvious but I have hit the books and have not come up with an answer.

Thanks C

:iagree: Himalayan Balsam. Nothing to worry about - they just get dusted as they collect the nectar/pollen.

Many thanks, I have just found the similar thread 'White stripes'.
