Hi Guys, today it was 34 degreesin Brisbane and 39 degrees is expected tommorow! Today I saw more than usrual bees dead outside the hive with a few twitching/dying. They died with their tongues out and I was wondering if this was because of dehydration, I saw a few bees at the entrance facing out and fanning their wings… Is this to move cool air inside the hive?
I have a metal lid, someone suggested painting it white… Do you think this will help?!
The vents in the lid were filled with propolis, so I have gone and unclogged them hopefully helping with more ventilation🤔
