I don't offhand remember a DWJ reference to telling the bees the news, 
but in Elizabeth Goudge's Linnets and Valerians, they do tell the bees 
the news, and the 1925 novel, The Keeper of the Bees, by Gene 
Stratton-Porter, goes into great detail on bee-keeping and talking to 
the bees.  It's also a great story if you can locate a copy in the UK.
