If you are into bee keeping then chances are that you have seen this on your hive.

There are two main reasons bees might beard. The first is to cool down the hive in warm weather, the second is if they are getting ready to swarm. It’s important to find out the reason behind this behavior because if your hive is getting ready to swarm, you might loose half (or more) of your colony. Here are some signs that will help you determine why your bees are bearding.

1. Is it an exceptionally warm day?
2. Are there bees lined up at the entrance faced the same direction beating their wings?
3. Is their ample, unused room in your hive?
If you answer yes to these questions then the bearding activity is most likely heat related.
1. The bees are leaving the hive to cool it off. Too many bees buzzing around inside creates a lot of extra heat.
2. The bees at the entrance faced the same direction are “fanning”. They beat their wings to try to cool the temperature of the hive.
3. If your bees have enough room in the hive to spread out, then chances are they aren’t too crowded and most likely aren’t looking to find a new home.

About OFF GRID with DOUG and STACY:
We moved to our 11 acres in 2011 from a large city in the Midwest with zero carpentry and farming skills. We live with no solar / wind power / public water or well. We share our adventure to a sustainable life, growing our own food from vegetables to meat. We post videos DAILY and they range from HOW TO to EVERYDAY LIFE and NUTRITION on the off grid homestead. We were city folks just like you probably and wanted to enjoy life and have more control over our food. We share food recipes as well as natural remedies.
