Winter Flying

20160130_114042

When winter temperatures get into the low 40s and the sun is shining, the bees will be out flying.  This is January 30, 2016.  The temperature is 48° and the sun is shining.

Honey bees are very hygienic, clean insects.  They will not poop in the hive.  So the bees are out on the warm, winter days, flying “cleansing flights.”  Don’t stand below them!
