bearding or nectur
« on: June 20, 2013, 02:19:15 pm »
2 weeks ago the temp on the avg was 94 and there were lots of bees hanging outside the enterrance.
last week the temp drop down to the mid 80's and they were still there. it looks like they are eating the landing board
and the front of the hive. what are these bees doing?
