990. Winter and bees

Add comments

casualties of winterSo today it was close to 40 degrees outside and the bees get plenty warm inside the colony. Which is good because they can move around freely and get their feed stores and the feed I have in the colony for them. However the warmth inside encourages a few to fly outside. Naturally once outside they do not make it too long. I assume that once the initial explorers do not come back the rest figure its best to stay put.
