    The bees are fanning to remove the moisture content from the syrup and /or nectar – making honey….cells will be sealed with wax when moisture content less than 20%.

    Thanks Donna. At the time, I didn’t really know what they were up to. But I’ve learned a lot since then. I’m looking forward to watching my bees in the spring — now that I understand most of what they’re doing. I won’t be so worried like I was.

      This reminds me, I need to update many of my old posts from this past year where I talk about some bee behaviour I didn’t understand. I understand a lot more now.
