Lazy Bees ...Not
Have you ever seen your bees all standing around on the front porch and thought, are those bees lazy?
Well guess what - they're not..
Foragers will hang out on the front porch ready for duty. What they're waiting for is a forager to return and dance about a great location. Then all these workers will leave and take advantage of it.
What they're waiting for is a good enough patch to be worth their while so they're not just waiting for any dancing bee. They want a large grouping of the same flowers for their call to duty.
So, if you see bees waiting around that's what they're doing. Waiting for that sweet dance.
