>>Analysis of readings taken during a 24-hour period shows that the temperature of the packed hives lagged behind that of the outside air for 6 to 8 hours.
packed hives lag 6-8 hours behind outside air, and unpacked hives lag 1-3 hours,
Yet, the cluster of the packed hives responds immediately with increasing temperature fluctuations than the unpacked hives do.
Takes more time for the unpacked hives to respond to increasing temperature fluctuations, even if its hive body warms faster?
Dont let the lag time fool you.
