I watched some very cool behavior out the front of the hive yesterday. Did a bit of research online & apparently this movement is known as ‘wash-boarding’
I would post a video but I think the file size is way too large. Just imagine the bees are motioning back & forth with their little mandibles going crazy on the surface of the hive.
What are peoples theories on this as it seems no one really knows what they are doing but some say they a cleaning the hive… doing a dance of some sort… and other ideas.
What do you think?
