Found a new bee magnet.
« on: May 12, 2013, 07:47:26 PM »
Ever since my smoker came back to life in the back of my truck when I thought it was out, I now dump the contents into a bucket near my bee yard and douce with water , I use hickory / wood pellets and pine needles. I've  noticed bees all over this substance in the bucket wet or dry, I wonder what they like about it? Charcoal? Burnt sap?

Minerals?  Sodium Hydroxide?
