Temperature conditions in the nest of bees

For the development of brood, the separation of wax and the construction of honeycombs, considerable warmth is required – 34-35 њ, as well as high humidity in the nest.

Bees have the ability to develop and maintain in their homes the required heat and humidity.

Increase in temperature is achieved by hilling of bees and increased metabolism of bees.

If the housing is large and the bees are small, they are not able to heat it properly, and therefore the brood grows poorly and the family does not come into force soon.

With a lack of air humidity in the nest, the development of the family also deteriorates.

According to scientific data, during the wintering period, when the bees lead a low-activity life, the temperature in the club drops to 13.9-14 њ from time to time, but does not hold at this level, and immediately rises to 20-25 hours relatively quickly (within a few hours) often to 28 њ, then slowly, over a period of several days, again decreases to 13.9-14 њ, then again there is an ascent, and so on.

Bees, gathered in the club, with the availability of food can carry a fairly low temperature (well below zero), but one bee stiffens already at + 5-6 њ. It happened that the bees, who had been outside the club for several hours at -3 њ C, still retained the ability to revive. Normally, bees fly out for a bribe at 10 њ C in the shade and above. Somewhat below 10 њ, bees can fly behind water or pollen during starvation. The most beautiful bees fly at 22-31 њ.
