Hello everyone from Bahrain!
Hi fellow beekeepers, I have started my long awaited bee project last February when my first hive was brought by a professional certified beekeeper who is training me as I go along. In order to learn more and with big interest to acquiring a flow beehive in the garden, I thought to join the forum. Many concerns this time of the year. Bees have been bearding mostly night time since June and upon instruction of my trainer I have started to put 50/50 mix of cinnamon/soybean to provide sufficient protein. I am not harvesting, but learning, and appreciating having bees. Honey amount is sufficient for them to get through the summer but am very concerned about access to protein and to manage the high temperatures and humidity which is this year higher than “normal”. Apparant temperature goes up to and over 62C in august. My fellow bee passionate friends and I are looking into the flow hive which might provide more comfort for the bees compared to the traditional hive and I would also be very grateful if any of you experienced beekeepers have any tips to keep the bees happy under such daunting weather conditions. Thank you all and thank you Flow for having me on board!
