[ExI] dead bee walking

Found another sick bee today, collected same, made an observation: by the
time I notice the bee walking, it is only minutes before it perishes.  I
don't know if this indicates tracheal mites, but I got out the microscope
this evening, sliced this one in half (or rather attempted to) and peered at
it's innards.  The result was inconclusive.  I am a rocket scientist, not a
doctor.  Certainly not a surgeon.

Open to suggestion.  Haven't yet set up my oxygen chamber to try to revive
one.  This one makes nine.
