Here’s your honey bee lesson for the day. This is something honey bees do and no one really knows why. It’s called “wash boarding”. The adolescent bees rock back and forth near the entrance of the hive. They don’t seem to be cleaning, guarding, socializing or anything else. Just rocking back and forth. I don’t know if it’s the same bees all day or if they trade off. But they do it just about every day, all day long.
