extremely large, dying, bees. I have a small colony of honey bees living in a bird house(see picture). These bees are green pee size, docile, and very happy collecting pollen and bringing it back to the house. Today I found these huge bees crawling away from the hive, 3 living, one dead. I believe they are attacking the hive and being defeated, so far. I have lived in oregon over 30 years and never seen a bee this big (Besides the bumble bee). Sugar ants are eating the bee in one picture. another was crawling up the foundation of the house. The curled one I hit with bee killer. I am using a IPA soaked sponge and a jar to try and preserve another one.
