Because those are the Tough New York bees... nothing phases themwe had a big rain storm last week. curious, i went up to check on my hives and the morning forage crew was still flying in! it was pouring! it was so much that the bottom board was collecting water faster than it could drain. the flyers knew to avoid the flooded landing board. they would take some extra time to line up the approach and fly straight in the entrance without landing.
it was fun to watch, but water started running down my back.
