    I went to watch the girls this afternoon and saw that the entrance is bright yellow, any ideas on what type of plant causes this? My second question is, why do the bees use such a small portion of the entrance? The staining is only about 2" wide and has just happened in the last 4 to 5 days. And thanks for all the great info shared on this site.

    They are working on the frames in that area.
