There is nothing wrong with bearding. As a matter of fact it is both natural and helpful the the bees. I'm not trying to tone down the bearding. I do, however, look at Melissa's unique bearding as an indicator there may be a population or ventilation issue.
I'll try to check Melissa this weekend; depending on the hurricane. Until then we added to her an undrawn super filled with foundation. That will give any extra bees a place to hang out. It will allow the bees more space for heat regulation. Plus, if they draw it out some, good!
