A Face Mask on Bee Beard Log Hive
March 29, 2013 by solarbeez
On a hot day in late March, the bees step out for some fresh air and dancing.
It’s unusably warm on the Oregon Coast today.
The lower bee has been fanning for awhile. While I was photographing, this other bee came out and fed her? I don’t know if that’s what it is, but from here, that’s what it looked like.
Pat’s next log hive progresses…much work still to be done before ready for bees.
Some bees are still outside the hive, at 10 pm. and 49 deg. F (9.4C)
This hive swarmed the next day. I missed the prime swarm but got the second swarm into a back-up Warre.
Swarm number 4 went into a tree hive.
Swarm #3 got mixed into swarm #5 that went into Bee-atrice log hive.
