I'm going to stick my "Beek Neck" out here. :scratch:
We had been put under a severe weather advisory..Sure enough,,the bees and the hbirds disappeared from the feeders on my deck. A little rain,,NBD Wasn't long before they returned. Then,,,another alert for very severe(I know degrees of severe) weather just 15 miles south and west of me. I mean the thunder was rollin, just not close...but man I could hear it,,,the bees and the Hbirds were hittin the feeders as nothing was goin on:scratch: WOW
Gotta figure they are in tune to the barometric differences,,,,don't ya think?
Just curious if others have observed similar. This is the first year I have had hives at my home.
If I see my girls running home (almost looks like robbing without the fighting) I pick up all my stuff outside just before the downpour. Florida bees are familiar with rain. Sorry some lack rain and smart bees. I had an unforgettable experience inspecting during a full eclipse several years ago. I will not do that again.

On several occasions we have been working the bees and noticed that the departures had dropped to nothing, with all arrivals. Upon looking at the sky, it was quickly determined it was "time to get out of Dodge". They new it first.
