Has anyone ever figured out what this behavior is for? I have had Bees for a few years and this year is the first that I have seen it in my bees. This is also the first time I have left entrances reduced.

line dancing bees



I hope this worked right

I've read about it before but no one seems to know the purpose. All 9 of my hives do it every evening. We just chalk it up to evening line dancing.
