Thread: Bees Swarming Algae Residue

    Bees Swarming Algae Residue

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    I have been alternating cartridge filters, filtering out dead algae, and after 24 hours, I have a decent amount (>10) of honeybees eagerly cleaning off the grey gunk that the hose missed

    Maybe it is fermenting back to sugars?

    I haven't seen it but knowing bees, it doesn't surprise me.

    Interesting. A pic of this would be interesting to see.
