Brilliant pic Rosti - That will be the definitive answer to all future questions like "What are my bees covered with/working?"

Many thanks for that piccy, I had a panic - as I do!- the other week when I saw a handfull of bees entering one of my hives with what looked like sun bleached hair dos! Decided to sit back and watch for a day or two and make sure nothing abnormal happening. They all seemed fine, more with their trendy new hair do so just hoped it was the latest fashion!! I did wonder if it was HB as so many people were talking about it . . . now I know!:hurray:
