    I took the stethoscope off an old blood pressure thingy and went out to listened to my hive this morning and it sounded like a party in there. I'm dying to see what is going on. There were bees out on the landing board and it was only 40 degrees this morning. I actually got headbutted when I was listening to the commotion. The hive is in full sun so I suspect they are plenty warm in there but I'm curious to know what the heck is going on in there.

    PerryBee...I got the idea from you..thanks. I can't believe they are out today. We still have snow on the ground. I went out to take a few pictures and they were flying around the hive..Tough little buggers!

    I'm gonna try it this weekend. I would call it a Perryoscope, but that sounds like something you look through on a submarine! :roll:

    I was going to suggest a Hoaryscope, but that sounds worse. :lol: :lol: Jack

    Wish I had one...yesterday I was putting my ear to the sides of the hives. Sounded great inside there but I really had to listen hard to hear them.

    I've got to get me a Perryoscope. Listening with ear against box does not work when trains are going by.

    "What's the noise?" This may not be a politically correct funny way to think about it, but they are all women. Female anyway. :)

    I don't know how to post a ducking head icon. heh,heh.

    Were they guys, the sound would be a tv w/ hockey or football playing. Just to be fairly unbalanced.
