How do bee’s know which hive to go to

Our regular customer came in this week to purchase paint to paint their new beehives.

They specifically asked for pastel yellow, green, blue & pink.

The bee’s know by the colour of the hive which hive they have to go to.  Bee’s see these primary colours as ultravoilet colours.  Many tests have been conducted using colour cards & bee feed, adding proof to this theory & the colour specific bee hives here.
