Thanks for that link! That should be a mandatory watch for beeks! I have always said I learn something new about bees every day...this is a very interesting fact indeed! Your title doesn't do that video justice. "Heater bees"...Fascinating! Thanks again! :thumbsup:

It is great fun to point a thermal imager at bees or a hive. I can generally spot the brood nest frames quickly. Bees warm their flight muscles before flight and their thorax is as warm as we are. "Bee Rockets" are fun to photograph. Bees kill intruders by "balling", raising their body temperatures to lethal levels.
