It was in high 60s a few days ago. Just for fun, I put this Boardman feeder out and the bees were all over it. I am in mid-MD. I returned the next morning. Cool. Overcast. And noticed the feeder and platform it was sitting on were speckled all over with bits of wax. Who would be depositing this wax? Bees of wax-building age are still house bees so do not fly, right? Are foragers making this wax? Are their wax glands spitting out bits of wax for them to work with and attach to the feeder despite their age?
