Video of life in a Drone Congregation Area
Here’s a video of life in a Drone Congregation Area. This was my third outing to find a honeybee drone assembly and to my amazement, this third find is the best yet.
About thirty drones can be seen pursuing a caged and mated Queen in one of those special areas where Queens go to mate. This caged Queen actually mated last year and I had just caught her in a swarm, but she is still of great interest to these frisky drones. For the full story, see the links below.
