I was watching the activity at the hive entrances, as I like to do, and I see my ladies rejecting & casting out some of the returning drones. But oh, wait. I am certain these drones are Not returning! They are the wrong color, for one thing, and for another, someone has marked some of them with bright yellow paint dots on their backs!
Did you do this? If so, where are you? Your painted boys have come calling on my hives in Rushville. (see pic)
