The Bees Are Poohing

We have had some nice warm weather the last couple of days and the bees from our beehives have been taking advantage of it.  They were flying around the hive and poohing all over the place.   It looks like little smears of mustard all over.  Did you know that bees do not pooh in their hive?  They "hold it" all winter long until the weather is warm enough to go out and relieve themselves.  

We're happy to see so many bees out flying around!  

This is not my picture, but this is what bee pooh looks like in the snow.

  1. It has been so warm here that the bees were out yesterday. I have never noticed their pooh, I'll have to look for it!
