Quelques abeilles se sont noyées en buvant dans ce point d'eau se trouvant à environ 500 mètres de la ruche. La présence d'eau est absolument indispensable aux abeilles qui ont un besoin vital de s'hydrater régulièrement, même en plein hiver, en s'abreuvant de préférence dans des flaques d'eau ou des mares peu profondes.
