Chase and I checked the hive yesterday, to make sure the new comb was being built straight on single bars and not spanning across multiple bars. I’ve been wanting to catch a shot of the bees doing this for a while now, and we were able to yesterday. Amazing creatures they are.
When honey bees build their comb, they work in teams. The teams of bees often festoon, or hang together to bridge open spaces in the hive. They are able to use their own bodies to bridge across areas by holding hands, of sorts, with other bees. Source
