Bee lining question for our friends Down Under
I have a question for my fellow beekeepers down under or any one who may know.
I am planning or tracking down several wild hives in my area of Missouri USA. (hundreds of acres of forest)
I was talking with a fellow bee keeper at our club about my plans and he told me about something he saw in a move.
Apparently the Abarignies attach a string with a feather to a harvester bee so they can see it better when tracking them back to the wild hive.
Does anyone have any links or more info about this?
(Is this true?)
