Re: TBH wintering questions
The really dont heat the inside, I've got a graf of imaging from the inside of a standard hive when it was 14 degrees outside, the cluste was like 94 degrees in the center cooling off to like 84 on the outside, the cluster was a few inches from the top of the hive, the top inside was about 74 degrees.
That part didnt suprise me but what did was that the lower box in the corners was at 17 degrees . They really don't heat the box only the cluster, the heat that raises from the cluster makes all that condensation.
maybe look up thermal images for bee hive , I don't have the link.
I'm not tense, Just terribly, terribly alert!
