What are they up to?

Jimmy

Our bees have been doing this for the last day or so. It appears that they are cleaning. The same behaviour is happening at the other 2 entrances of this top bar hive. There doest appear to be any propolis being made. It is the same bees for long periods of time.

I just did some reading and it seems they are polishing and tidying the entrance. Part of the bees work keeping the hive clean.

I have my first hive and my bees did something similar when they first moved in, they were scraping their mandibles along the landing board and moving their front legs back towards their body. I thought it might have been a guard behaviour.
