Do Bees Poop?


Have you ever wondered how bees poop?


I thought I would give you the run down of bee pooping protocol. FYI or TMI you decide

Bees are very clean, if someone did poop or make any type of mess inside the hive, it would be cleaned and  properly propolised immediately

Bees typically only poop outside the hive while in mid-flight

They do not poop until they are old enough to fly

Since bees don’t fly out for long intervals, you can imagine how much they are holding in there.

This discussion began when someone asked me if the yellow stuff at the bottom of the hive was poop or pollen. It’s probably pollen, mostly. You’re welcome.
