bearding is what happens when I not bee shaving.

Honeydreams stole my thunder.

temperature is likely the biggest motivation for bearding. a wall of crawling, fanning wings trying to draw air through the hive.

So Konrad your saying that your bees was committing suicide that day and the ones that are in the snow on the ground succeeded???? :lpf: So why did you have one in January??? Did you close the door and left them outside??...hahaha
LOL...
I have really no answer to this one, I have never seen them bearding in summer, winter yes.
Guess they felt like suntanning a bit.
Anybody seen this phenomena in winter?

maybe they were tryin to eliminate moisture in the hive by fanning??? Dont know we dont see many days that cold here, but I agree with a previous post, since we switched to SBB we dont see much bearding here in hot sunny Florida.
