    Default When a bee goes "oomph"

    When a bee gets squashed between bars, does she have time to spray an alarm?

    I know she has a lot of time to spray a lot of nosema spores if she is infected!!

    Watch the bees nearest to her(if you can). If they start fanning right after she's squished, I guess she can.
    Just something I've noticed.

    Do bee guts equal alarm?

    From squishing a lot of bees over the past couple of years, I can say that every squished bee does not send an alarm scent.

    Yeah, the ones I observed weren't completely smashed flat. They were kind of bump/crunch while trying to close bars up.
