Today I noticed a large number of bees gathered in front of my hive and doing a dance one foot forward and one foot backward. Can anyone interpret this? Thanks.

I agree. After reading about "Washboarding" I realized that is exactly what they are doing. However, I don't think that they are applying a scent to the entrance, as mentioned in another thread as they are doing it even on the side walls. I just can't think of a reason why they doing this.

My bees do this,,,,it's because I told them about the saying "Busy as a Bee.) They don't want to let anyone down:D:D
