New from Moundville, AL
« on: August 06, 2012, 11:35:34 PM »
Have a friend who put a hive at my house for me and the Grandkids to watch. Tonight we noticed lots of bees outside the hive. First time I've noticed this at night so I was looking for an answer. Found this site and the answer. Turned out to be that temp control thing they do. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. Bearding is a good sign of a strong colony. I often check mine at dusk to get an idea which are strong and which need my attention.
I was born and raised in Bessemer so I know you're in a really good area for bees.

Welcome aboard, woodchuck.  You had better be careful or the next thing you know you'll be studying the beekeeping supply stores. ;)

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev
