I'm a completely new keeper and so far it's been interesting. However the most interesting thing I've been watching is how quickly they seem to react to the weather.
I'm wondering what are some basic "Guidelines", temp, wind, cloudiness, rain etc and how they react to each.
From what little I've seen it appears they are very interested in being in the hive any time it's not mostly to very sunny. If a decent cloud layer rolls in they are inside, early in the morning they don't come out before it's sunny and at night they are in well before sunset.
This AM it was 55 degrees and sunny and I expected them to be out and about and there was very little activity. I'm assuming it was still to cold.
So what are some basic weather guidelines? When can I expect to see a flurry of activity and when will they all be inside?
