Where the bees pollinating exotic wildflowers? Sadly, no.
They were feeding on discarded M&M shells discarded from a biogas plant located just 2.5 miles from the hives!
Oddly enough, the waste processing plant and the beekeepers solved the mystery at the same time. The candy remnants are now covered and the bees must find another source of nourishment.
