Cooling down the Hive!
This extreme heat is making the U.S. Pest Protection BeeAware bees work extra hard this year! These days if you stop by the hives you’ll see them hanging out at the front door madly fanning their wings to help cool down the inside of the hive.
Check out these two close up videos shot this month in slow motion of a honeybee’s wings working to cool down the hive! Look how fast their wings are moving!!
These are some of the hardest working bees we know. They’re doing whatever it takes to get the hive through this summer. We’re so proud!
