Hello

I just got 100lbs bag of dead bees from my neighbors any thought on composting them ? !!! he say that he did not use any chemicals on them and that the region around here is very clean (no industries or big ag farms)
I have been told that it is very very high in Nitrogen

thank you

I'd just throw them out in your garden, we had a hive of yellowjackets that would raid our bee colonies each day, some worse than others. Some days from their battles I'd see hundreds of dead bees. Well let's just say that spot is very lush this year.
