The next day she commented that some of the bees aren't very good fliers. She noticed that sometimes they bump into each other at the platform. She witnessed caretaker bees carrying out their dead. She watched them stick out their tongues and sip water from the damp paper towel (which she keeps re wetting for them).
Then I heard that she was feeding them honey. She remembered me telling her that I would take my pails and empty combs back to the bee yard for the bees to lick clean. After she emptied a honey pail she put it and the sticky spoons out for the bees to lick clean. And they did.
