Relieving the heat- is it make sense?
My 30 hives are located in a desert climate
and now it's getting hot till the peak in the end of August.
In the last 3 years i shadowed the hives and take care
for sufficient amount of fresh water and in spite of that,
they seems to suffer from the high Tempratures.
After i will take off the second honey supers, i thought to replace them with
empty shallow super for extra space so the bees won't be too crowded
and suffer less from the high temperatures.
Can it be practically idea?
