hi all
just wondered if this was another usual occurence during api treatment,ive just been out to the hive and there are maybe a dozen or so girls fanning at the entranceis this normal??
Mine did the same for the first 2 or 3 days of each treatment application.
They are doing a fine job of drawing the vapours down through the hive and out the entrance,killing Mites on the way :cheers2:
i must admit it does pong around the hive at the mo lol:ack2::ack2:
they were still out at 3.00am bless em:willy_nilly::willy_nilly:
I will leave the more experienced to suggest whether or not that particular behavious is normal.

My limited experience suggests that the only bee behaviour that is truly normal is the truly abnormal!
