This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Washboarding bees

A beekeeper shot this video of her bees washboarding on the front of her hive.
This is a behavior that happens occasionally in a hive. This is a little odd because a large area on the front of the hive has bees doing the behavior. The bees are just moving back and forth.
 No one is sure what really causes this, but an interesting behavior.
