    Sounds like they were possibly just trying to cool off. It is called bearding. Sorta like sitting out of the front porch when it's too hot in the house. Try giving them a little ventilation to...

    Are they bearding? Bearding is when they hang around on the outside of the hive to cool off because it is too hot inside the hive. You can try giving them a little more ventilation by proping the...

    I sell pints for 7.00 and quarts for 12.00. That seems to be an average price around me.
