So my efforts to keep my hive cool this weekend have proven unsuccessful. They were doing great up until yesterday afternoon apparently. I had to work but they were doing well when I left in the morning. Sometime during the heat of the day it just became too hot for them to overcome, and I lost the entire hive. A big pile of dead bees at the landing board and on the ground, in the hive… Everywhere.
I wish I had been home to be able to try to do more, but it was just too hot for them. Now to try and decide how to restart and if I should change the location or what.
