    Nope, didn't know that. I did know that quite often there are alot of bees left behind when I move hives in July. But I just thought that they stayed out during the night because they didn't get back home before dark. Now apparently they may be out working. Those must be the Type A Bees, not the Type Bee Bees. :)

    That is what I always thought, they just got caught after dark and had to camp out in a bloom somewhere til the sun cam up again.

    Make you wonder if they ever go to sleep.

    Apparently so :wave: When we have a full moon here it's like daylight outside so it makes sense they would use that time too...
