[ocba] Dead Bees - Tongues out

Hi folks, I just installed 2 packages a few weeks ago and one of the hive
has about 100 visible dead bees on the ground in front. Other hives have
not one. Seems to be mostly from one day and few more every day for last
few days. I've noticed they are some that are twitchy and have their
tongues hanging way out. They were healthy when installed and have had
sugar syrup and pollen substitute since they were installed. Is it safe to
assume they are dying due to exposure to pesticide somewhere they are
foraging? Any other ideas?
