Never has tail in the air looked so good.
Our new girls have officially accepted us, as evidenced by some Nasonov action on the landing board yesterday.
The Nasonov gland, hidden at the base of the abdomen, releases a special pheromone that calls forager bees back to the colony. It’s essentially used to declare “Home, Sweet, Home” in case anyone’s confused or lost.
To me, it’s a sign the girls in the Kerry hive have decided to call us home.
