Bees and moss

We are grateful you are here

Bees and moss

My grandma has a hut in the mountains with a fountain, next to the property a beekeeper has beehives. The fountain is wooden and sometimes overflows on the edges, hence it is moist and some moss grows on there. The bees are carzy for that moss, or the water in the moss, they don't go to the wet wood for a drink, only to the mossy parts. Why is that? Does the moss have beneficial microbes, antibiotics? They don't seem to eat it but just drink from it, but I could be wrong
