    jmgi is spot on with his recommendations. Also, I'd do as Rader suggested and read Mr. Bush's comments. He's one of the best!

    Re: is this normal bearding?

    I can honestly tell you that I have several of my hives do this in the past. However, it is usually only in the afternoon and ONLY when it has been real hot during the day.
